Partnership, Preparation, and Progress in Training Community College Administrative Leaders
Dominguez, Ramon
Educational Considerations, v33 n2 p30-34 Spr 2006
Having a sufficient number of qualified individuals to fill vacant positions is essential for community colleges in both New Mexico and the nation. Qualified individuals must be well-prepared both academically and "practically" to take a leadership role in a major institution of higher education, the community college. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the Community College Leadership Doctoral Program (CCLDP) was achieving these goals. Specifically, the researcher sought answers to the following questions: (1) Were graduates prepared to take on the significant role and responsibility of enhancing the present-day mission and future challenges of the modern comprehensive community college as well as enhancing the success of the "whole" student? and (2) How did the CCLDP and community colleges work in partnership to prepare students with a comprehensive theoretical administrative base as well as a strong practical perspective? (Contains 13 endnotes.)
