University-based community college leadership programs are meeting not only student needs but also the needs within their states. This report from the American Association of Community Colleges' (AACC's) Leading Forward initiative highlights strategies and practices of six new programs, formed since 2000, that are breaking tradition through their use of flexible scheduling, innovative delivery methods, and strong partnerships among universities, community colleges, and others concerned with developing community college leaders. The insights and lessons discussed in this report should assist both college leaders and policymakers as they continue to tackle the critical task of nurturing and developing strong and effective leaders. (Contains 6 tables and 3 figures.)
