Understanding Community Colleges, Paperback Book


Understanding Community Colleges provides a critical examination of contemporary issues and practices and policy of community colleges.

This contributed volume brings together highly respected scholars as well as new scholars for a comprehensive analysis of the community college landscape, including management and governance, finance, student demographics and development, teaching and learning, policy, faculty, and workforce development.

Written for students enrolled in higher education and community college graduate programs, as well as social sciences scholars, this provocative new edition covers the latest developments in the field, including trends in enrollment, developmental education, student services, funding, and shared governance.

At the end of each chapter, the "Questions for Discussion" section helps to bridge the gap between research and practice.
