This document discusses how community colleges have become a vital and perhaps permanent aspect of the United States higher education system, and how it must maintain a competent leadership in order to maintain its integrity. It emphasizes the importance of effective leadership development within the community colleges as they continue to develop and serve increasingly diverse and complex needs. It then describes the current state of community college leadership as being in somewhat of a crisis. This volume intentionally mixes authors who have practical or scholarly experience or both. Chapters include: (1) Leadership Blues, by March and Weiner; (2) Leadership Context for the Twenty-First Century, by Boggs; (3) Developing Community College Faculty as Leaders, by Cooper and Pagotto; (4) Learning on the Job: Moving from Faculty to Administration, by McCarthy; (5) Leadership Development: The Role of the President-Board Team, by Vaughan and Weisman; (6) Role of Universities in Leadership Development, by Duvall; (7) Administration 101: Evaluation of a Professional Development Program, by Chiriboga; (8) Leadership Development: A Collaborative Approach, by Carroll and Romero; (9) In House Leadership Development: Placing the Colleges Squarely in the Middle, by Piland and Wolf; and (10) Leadership Development Programs, by Kim.
