Clarke, Jr., chairman of the Maryland Higher Education Commission), which urges institutions to embrace change in the 21st century; (2) "Higher Education's Role in Workforce Development" (Patricia S. Florestano, Maryland Secretary of Higher Education), which argues that higher education has a key role to play in workforce development; (3) "The Origins of 'Entrepreneurialism' in American Higher Education" (Margaret Masson and Jim Westwater, both past presidents of MAHE), which asserts that higher education has become a corporate enterprise and that success for all organizations now requires them to become learning organizations; (4) "The Widening Gyre: Getting Ready for Information Age Learning in Maryland's Community Colleges" (Jon H.
