This report is the result of a national conference convened in December 2005 by the American Association of Community Colleges in partnership with the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) and supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF). This event, the Teaching by Choice Leadership Summit on Community College Faculty, examined the challenges and opportunities related to recruiting, retaining, and developing exceptional science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) faculty in community colleges. The recommendations presented here should be useful for college faculty and administrators, business leaders, and policymakers in all sectors concerned about the nation's competitiveness. A list of the Summit participants is included. [Text by Madeline Patton.]
