Profiles for Progress: Preparing Community College Leaders for a New Era. Report #2.
Claremont Graduate Univ., CA.; Community Coll. Leadership Development Initiative, CA.
This document contains two papers written for a workshop conducted by the Community College Leadership Development Initiative (CCLDI) and Claremont Graduate University (CGU) in June 2000. The introduction discusses CCLDI's presentation of leadership programs affecting the community college segment of higher education, and the progress they have made in addressing the need for such programs. Difficulties in leading community colleges have become more complex over time, and because of that the CCLDI was created in 1998 to re-energize institutional leadership. Both papers in this document reflect on the design of the CCLDI program in meeting the needs of a changing scene of leadership in community colleges. The first paper, "Dancing on a Moving Rug" (Jack Hernandez), focuses more on the passion for the design, and the context and issues of leadership that are most important. The second paper, "Roadmap for Leadership" (Bill Scroggins), highlights the philosophy behind leadership and specific elements of the design--selection of candidates, relationship to partner universities, and components of operation for both Doctoral Fellows programs and Leadership Fellows programs.
