Partners in Economic Development: Community College Strategies for Collaboration.
Ryan, G. Jeremiah, Ed.
In response to the competitive challenges of the emerging world economy, employers are looking increasingly to community colleges for the provision of job training to revitalize their work forces. While job training is an appropriate role for community colleges, its delivery, characterized by speed and adaptability, is contrary to most campus cultures, and calls for a new paradigm of teaching for the nation's workers. This book describes state-of-the-art economic development programs at community colleges. It's eight chapters are: (1) "A President's Perspective on Economic Development," by Richard J. Pappas; (2) "The Community College as an Economic Development Tool," by Charles C. Spence and Stanley Block; (3) "Federal Funding for Economic Development and Community Colleges," by David B. Canine; (4) "Partnerships with Senior Colleges and Universities," by Catherine B. Ahles; (5) "Serving Small Business," by Richard Shaink; (6) "Serving Big Business," by Frank G. Milligan and James L. McGuidwin; (7) "Working with Labor Unions," by Evan S. Dobelle and James Mullen; and (8) "The Fund Raising and Economic Development Linkage," by G. Jeremiah Ryan. (PAA)
