Learning for Today's Leader: The Changing State of Community College Training Programs
Ullman, Ellen
Community College Journal, v80 n6 p20-22, 24-25 Jun-Jul 2010
Today's environment requires community college leaders to put student success and equity at the top of their leadership agendas. Thus, higher education institutions have realized a need to change the philosophies and programs that underpin the training of community college leaders. Other schools of education are adapting to give college leaders the necessary tools to thrive in today's changing climate. New and evolving skill sets include the ability to digest and understand data, global awareness, technology prowess, emotional intelligence, financial acumen, and fundraising ability. The consensus among experts is that colleges must begin to train leaders at all levels, not just for presidencies. Leadership programs must place a greater focus on developing junior and support staff to become the next generation of presidents.
