Globalization Contextualized: An Organization-Environment Case Study
Frost, Robert A.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v33 n12 p1009-1024 2009
Over the past two decades, changes in higher education, the emerging global economy, and other social changes all influence the environment in which community colleges operate. This article investigates leadership perceptions of adaptation to a rapidly globalizing education environment. Data were collected through a multisite case study that included leaders from five colleges. The paper applies globalization theory to leader interviews to present an organization-environment study within the community college.
