Vaughan, George B.; And Others
Developed to aid community college leaders in considering what changes in governance, curriculum and student services are needed to keep their institutions vital and responsive to contemporary needs, this book suggests ways of responding to major issues facing community colleges.

Part 2, on the special functions of community colleges, presents "Providing Remedial Education," by Donald Barshis and Thomas Guskey; "Reformulating General Education Programs," by Chester Case; "Strenthening Transfer Programs," by Alexander Astin; and "Redirecting Student Services," by Paul Elsner and Clark Ames. Part 3, on managing community colleges, includes "Leading the Educational Program," by Arthur Cohen; "Building Commitment to the Institution," by Richard Richardson, Jr. and William Rhodes; "Population Trends and Need for Diversity," by J. Wade Gilley; "Establishing Alliances with Business and Industry," by Harold Hodgkinson; and "New Concepts for Community Colleges," by Robert McCabe and Suzanne Skidmore. (LAL)
