Ethical Dimensions of the Open-Door Admissions Policy
Ingram, William G.; Morrissey, Sharon E.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n148 p31-38 Win 2009
Ethical dilemmas at the community college often pose a choice between options equally grounded in the core values of the institution. These dilemmas often emerge from disputes that are complex, dynamic, and politically volatile. We review the development of one such dispute to show how our understanding of institutional core values is often only clarified through reflection and consultation with appropriate advisors, authorities, and constituencies.
