East-West Community College Project Leadership Training Report.
Community Colleges for International Development, Inc.
This document summarizes the history and planning efforts of the East-West Community Consortium for Community College Development in Thailand, a group of Thai and U.S. education officials charged with coordinating the establishment of ten community colleges in rural Thailand and Bangkok. This report outlines the timeline, content, format and results of the Leadership Training program conducted in May 2002. It is intended to provide key community college staff at the local level along with managing staff from the Ministry of Education an opportunity to learn more about organizing and training advisory committees, techniques for assessing local needs, and establishing partnerships with business, industry, and other community groups. The program included an overview of the North Carolina Community College System as a means of highlighting the tremendous training and educational roles local community colleges play within a community (e.g., literacy training, job skills training, etc.). Additional information includes the roles and responsibilities of a community college trustee, requirements and issues related to college transfer, the significance of occupational education, the role of community colleges in workforce development, and the recruitment of new business and industry. The report concludes with recommendations for moving forward with the Thailand Community College Project and an expression of continued support for this initiative. (RC)
