Re-Conceptualizing the Relationship between Community Colleges and Universities Using a Conceptual Framework Drawn from the Study of Jurisdictional Conflict between Professions
Skolnik, Michael L.
Community College Review, v39 n4 p352-375 Oct 2011
This article examines the relationship between community colleges and universities in Canada and the United States based on increased involvement of community colleges in offering baccalaureate programs. The article employs a theoretical framework borrowed from the study of jurisdictional conflict between professions. After considering the types of possible and occurring jurisdiction settlement over baccalaureate preparation between universities and community colleges, the author concludes that the older, simplistic criterion--based on credentials awarded--that defined the division of labor between postsecondary sectors should be replaced with newer, more complex and multifaceted criteria that relate to program and client characteristics.
