This special community college edition of "Bridges to Student Success" serves to showcase the important role of student services within the community college and to highlight the creative initiatives at the core of the community college mission. This publication invited five community college leaders, many of whom began their careers in student affairs, to describe their vision of the community college of the future and to give their advice for those working in the student services field. The themes these leaders discuss highlight some of the themes seen in the descriptions of the 9 exemplary student affairs programs that follow. The programs include: (1) "The First-Semester Student Experience" (Moraine Valley Community College); (2) "Navigating the Academic Waters Workshop" (Georgia Perimeter College); (3) "Camp 'Of Course You Can!'"
