Those who lead community colleges and those who aspire to lead them will gain essential insights from this frank discussion of the particular issues pertaining to this unique subsection of higher education. This timely book offers realistic advice on how to handle the challenges-current and future-that such leaders must grapple with. Following the chapters that describe the landscape of community college leadership, the author takes a hard look at a set of proposed solutions from outside academia, then turns to another set of proposed solutions emerging from inside the community college world, with more potential to succeed for all concerned, closing the book on this hopeful note.
