Career Education and Community College Leadership.
Marland, S. P., Jr.
Because the community college is young, unencumbered by years of tradition, and clearly on the front line of educational reform, it has a unique opportunity to assume a leadership role in a number of ways. First, the 2-year institutions should initiate a more intensive dialogue with senior colleges and universities with regard to the transfer of academic and career-related credits. Second, community colleges should encourage senior institutions to take a page from their book in recruiting professional staff who have had work experiences. Third, both junior and senior colleges need to work more closely with high schools, particularly with their guidance counselors, to steer students into pre-college courses that mesh more systematically with their own post-secondary offerings in the academic and career fields students expect to enter. Fourth, both two- and four-year colleges should reach out to the community with continuing education programs that serve the total population. (JS)
