Community College Funding: Adopting a Team Approach
Terrell, Thomas E., Jr.
Community College Journal, v75 n3 p44-47 Dec 2004-Jan 2005
When it comes to structure, governance, mission, or size, community colleges differ from state to state. One common element in many states, however, is state funding. Whether a state prepares its budget annually or biennially, the human behavior governing the budget process remains the same. Funds are finite. Everyone wants more than can be distributed and, undoubtedly, all other agencies and groups believe their cause is superior. Adopting a team approach is often the best strategy for breaking through political barriers at all levels.
