UCLA Community College Bibliography: Women Community College Presidents
Liu, Amy
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v31 n10 p833-840 Oct 2007
This bibliography provides an overview of recent scholarship on female community college presidents. A significant and growing number of women are serving as community college presidents. Specifically, there has been an increase in women community college presidents from 11% in 1991 to nearly 28% in 2001. With more women holding presidencies at community colleges as compared to other types of higher education institutions, examining their characteristics, leadership styles, and decision-making processes provides greater understanding of overall community college management. Included in this bibliography are citations that address the role of women in defining community college culture, the role of gender in presidential communications and leadership, the attributes and behaviors perceived to contribute to success in the community college presidency, and the work/family balance that women community college presidents must attain during their career. The articles and studies cited provide an ideal starting point for further personalized research on women community college presidents.
