Fostering Community College Leaders: An Examination of Leadership Development Programs
Robison, Greg; Sugar, William; Miller, Brian
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v34 n8 p605-623 2010
The study reported in this paper identifies leadership development practices within community colleges by surveying North Carolina community college presidents and evaluating an individual North Carolina community college's leadership institute. The results of the study indicate these community colleges indeed have an interest in leadership development activities for its employees, and the examined leadership institutes are quite effective and beneficial for its participants. Based upon these findings, two sets of recommendations are offered for fostering leadership initiatives within community colleges, namely, a focus on more significant topics for community college employees and developing a leadership learning community within a community college.
