Oil, Maslow, and Competency: A Good Mix for Partnerships?
Farrell, Patricia L.; Seifert, Kim Allan
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v32 n4-6 p443-452 Apr 2008
This article is a case study of a community college that received federal funding for two different projects involving welfare-to-work participants and local workforce development. Despite sounding good on paper, the partnerships did not finish on a high note for either the college or the local community. Social capital theory was used to analyze the study, and the goal is to engage in dialogue with the audience on the implications for policy and practice.
