Charting the Future of Global Education in Community Colleges. New Expeditions: Charting the Second Century of Community Colleges. Issues Paper No. 12.
American Association of Community Colleges, Washington, DC.; Association of Community Coll. Trustees, Annandale, VA.
This document is part of the New Expeditions series, published by the American Association for Community Colleges. It addresses technology, meeting the needs of a diverse student body, and remaining economically viable and locally responsible in a global community. The paper asserts that, as community colleges transform from teaching to learning institutions, they will build on a new definition of community that is not place-centered but learner-centered. Therefore, community can no longer be defined as local. Discussed is how global education will affect the following issues at community and two-year colleges: (1) access and equity; (2) faculty role; (3) finance; (4) governance; (5) leadership development; (6) market forces; (7) student needs; (8) technology; and (9) teaching and learning. The article also explores the expansion from local to global communities, and the resulting change in the community college's civic role. Contained in the appendices are a community colleges and global education executive summary, the New Expeditions survey on global education in community colleges, a list of providers of testimony at the New Expeditions hearing in Washington, DC, a list of participants at the New Expeditions Conference, and the hearing testimony.
