The Suburban Project: Creating an Institutional Focus for the Entire College Community
Dolce, Philip C.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v33 n11 p951-952 2009
Bergen Community College (BCC) created an institutional focus that allows faculty, staff, students, and administrators to join forces in understanding the suburban sense of place that defines the communities it serves. Bridging the various college departments enables BCC to connect local issues to regional, national, and international matters related to the "middle landscape." This institutional focus has a significant role in building leadership and community at each level of operation.
