Partnering to Move Students into College and Community-Oriented Careers: The Administration of Justice Department at East Los Angeles College
Kisker, Carrie B.; Hauser, Patrick
New Directions for Community Colleges, n139 p29-39 Fall 2007
Community colleges' partnerships with other organizations give students opportunities to gain a realistic understanding of what will be expected of them upon graduation, and they help create a seamless path from college to career. This chapter describes how the Administration of Justice (AJ) Department at East Los Angeles College has partnered with community and educational organizations to move students into college and careers in law enforcement, criminal justice, and the fire service. The authors begin by illustrating the department's unique features and then describe four valuable practices that have allowed the AJ department to build and maintain strong partnerships and serve its students.
