Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, v29 n23 p24, 26-27 Dec 2012
In an age of increasing pressures on the future workforce, the Presidents' Round Table, a network of African-American community college presidents and chief executives, seeks to meet the demand for supplying and training the next generation of educated employees for the evolving job picture. Among its varied goals, the Round Table works to empower and provide community college leaders with the skills to keep the nation's community colleges viable. To get a glimpse into the needs and stresses facing community college leaders, "Diverse: Issues In Higher Education" spoke with two of the Round Table's leaders: Dr. Andrew C. Jones, chancellor of Coast Community College District in Southern California and convener of the Round Table, and Dr. Charlene M. Dukes, president of the Prince Georges Community College in suburban Maryland, outside of Washington, D.C., who is secretary of the Round Table. Excerpts of the dialogue with them are presented in this paper.
