Leadership Abstracts, v14 n1-4 Feb-Aug 2001
This is volume 14 of Leadership Abstracts, a newsletter published by the League for Innovation (California). Issue 1 of February 2001, "Developmental Education: A Policy Primer," discusses developmental programs in the community college. According to the article, community college trustees and presidents would serve their constituents well by focusing more attention on developmental education. Issue 2 of April 2001, "An Open Door to the Bachelor's Degree," argues for the dismantling of local, state, and federal barriers to offering the bachelor's degree in applied arts and sciences at community colleges. Widespread access to higher education is critical to the economic health and social welfare of the country, and the community college is a logical option for increased access. Issue 3 of June 2001, "Brother-to-Brother: Enhancing the Intellectual and Personal Growth of African American Males," explores a special program at St. Petersburg College (Florida) that helps African-American males identify and overcome common and significant stumbling blocks to college entrance and academic success. Issue 4 of August 2001, "Building Your Foundation," examines the challenges of building a community college foundation. (NB)
