Stop the Presses! Using the Journalism Field as a Case Study to Help Community College Administrators Today
Basham, Matthew J.; Campbell, Dale F.; Garcia, Emmanual
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v34 n1-2 p175-179 2010
A focus group consisting of board of trustee members, community college presidents, senior administrators, administrators, and faculty members from community colleges around the United States developed the top six critical issues facing community colleges with respect to instructional planning and services; planning, governance, and finance; and workforce development. Thereafter, the delegation of more than 100 voted on various aspects of these issues. The findings detail a shift away from pragmatic problems or opportunities of today, such as K-20 alignment, retention, and sustainability, to more lifelong learning, globalization, and focus upon innovation and partnerships. The findings are discussed here in more detail with respect to the changes occurring in the journalism field. It is hoped the problems of the journalism field, which might have been avoided, can be discussed and turned into opportunities for community college administrators.
