Bragg, Debra D., Ed.; Reger, William, IV, Ed.
Update on Research and Leadership, v9 n1-3 Fall 1997-Fall 1998
This document contains three issues of "Update on Research and Leadership," a newsletter from the University of Illinois. The first issue examines the integration of Internet technologies with course delivery. The two lead articles describe current efforts to bring new technology to the community college classroom. The second issue addresses the community college mission. Surging numbers of anticipated students and technological innovations in the delivery of course content potentially impact college operations. Colleges must find ways to reduce costs or to create new revenue streams, hence the on-going discussion about partnering and collaboration, the debate over access, and the emphasis on contract training. The third issue focuses on new frontiers in community college leadership. With the onset of the new millennium, increasing attention is being paid to the core values of leaders and their institutions. Colleges can use a variety of works to develop a core values approach to leadership. (JA)
