Inside-Outside: Finding Future Community College Leaders
Strom, Stephen L.; Sanchez, Alex A.; Downey-Schilling, JoAnna
Community College Enterprise, v17 n1 p9-21 Spr 2011
Over the next decade, as the community college's current generation of leaders and administrators begin retiring in large numbers, important steps must be taken to identify and develop future leaders for the institution. A variety of internal opportunities (e.g., internships, leadership development programs, graduate school programs) provide effective training for potential future leaders already working in higher education. Yet there remains a need for comprehensive leadership and an understanding of issues--besides academics--impacting the community college: business-industry partnerships, instructional technology centers, media relations, development, facilities and planning, budgeting, and risk management. Current college and board leaders must look critically at potential leaders inside and outside the institution, developing programs and making necessary changes to ensure future leaders are available to fill the impending void.
