Community College Leadership Preparation Programs: A Review of the Literature
Forthun, Gracie; Freeman, Sydney, Jr.
Community College Enterprise, v23 n1 p69-81 Spr 2017
The community college systems of the United States are currently facing a leadership crisis; existing administrators are retiring at greater rates. And there is concern that there are not enough qualified individuals to replace leaders who are retiring, which is a substantial concern to individuals particularly in the community college educational sector. The objective of this paper is to discuss the history, current state, and future role of community college leadership programs in addressing this leadership challenge. This literature review explores the solution to the leadership shortage--community college leadership training programs--and describes the state of the various community college administrator pipelines. The paper concludes by arguing how these programs and leaders can remain relevant and take action in addressing this most important issue.
