Community Colleges in Canada. CHERD/CSSHE Reader Series Number 1.
Dennison, John D., Ed.
This publication is part of a series that reprints articles on a range of thematic issues published in the "Canadian Journal of Higher Education." This collection focuses on community colleges in Canada. Although the community college sector has been evolving in Canada for almost 40 years, community colleges have received only limited attention in the literature on higher education. As community colleges in Canada enter a new era, it will be more important to share information about their development and operation. After a preface and an introduction, the five articles are: (1) "A Study of Students from Academic Programs in British Columbia's Community Colleges" (John D. Dennison, Glen Forrester, and Gordon Jones, 1982); (2) "Goals of Community Colleges in Canada: A 1987 Perspective" (John D. Dennison and John S. Levin, 1988); (3) "Freshman Attrition in a College of Applied Arts and Technology in Ontario" (Peter H. J. Dietsche, 1990); (4) "Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Colleges: An Interpretive Study of the Piloting of Innovation Centres" (Carol L. McWilliam, 1990); and (5) "Arrangements for Coordination between University and College Sectors in Canadian Provinces" (Michael L. Skolnik and Glen A. Jones, 1993). (Individual article contains references.) (SLD)
