Carruth, Blair K. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2019
Community colleges and universities have traditionally functioned independently, serving their respective markets and offering different programs and credentials. Growing populations and workforce needs have inspired institutions of higher education to challenge their traditional roles to provide added pathways and opportunities for students. One…

Mellow, Gail O. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
In thinking about the changes in higher education over the past five decades as "Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning" turns 50, the image that comes to mind is pixilation, the process by which complex digital images, when seen up close, are expressed as small individual squares of color. The realization that all the images on digital…

Bailey, Thomas – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
Community colleges have long had multiple missions. The first community college was designed to relieve elite colleges of the burden of educating 18- and 19-year-olds. Thus, it was initially conceived of as a transfer institution--students would go on to upper division courses at a four-year college once they had matured and were ready for more…

Swett, Denise – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2016
Technology resources play an integral part in college students achieving their academic goals, and yet higher education is often behind in adopting the most appropriate contemporary technology. Just over three-quarters of Gen Z students believe that their online experiences will help them achieve academic success, and more than half say they like…

Bragg, Debra; McCambly, Heather; Durham, Brian – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2016
The newest student activist movement appears to be amplifying what some higher education practitioners have talked about for a long time: students of color have been granted access to an educational opportunity that was not as advertised, and the result is not good enough. Others are shining the spotlight on race, class, identity, and equity as…

Jones, Stan – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
Due to extensive research, we now know that in spite of extraordinary success in expanding access to American higher education over the last 60 years, far too little has been done to ensure that students complete college, even when they take 50 percent more time to complete the degree than full-time attendance should require. Obstacles to success…

Smith, Caroline Altman; Baldwin, Christopher; Schmidt, Gretchen – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
Ten years ago, community college presidents' most valued datum was the number of students enrolled, which drove the colleges' funding. Providing access to higher education for the millions of students without the time, money, or academic preparation to attend a traditional four-year college was (as it always had been) their top priority. Today, a…

Handel, Stephen J. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2014
This article defines the term "under matching" as the behavior in which mostly less-affluent, highly qualified high school graduates choose not to enroll at an institution that matches their qualifications--behavior which threatens their chances of earning a degree. The supporting research--rigorous, compelling, and…

Johnstone, Sally M.; Soares, Louis – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2014
The 2013 US college/university policy agenda, "Making College Affordable: A Better Agenda for the Middle Class," highlighted the role of developing technologies, institutional curriculum-design processes, and new delivery methods as keys to providing quality, affordable postsecondary education. Competency-based education (CBE) is given…

Freedman, Marc – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2013
Fewer than half of all Americans will be financially ready to retire at age 65, according to a recent Boston College study. Two coinciding needs, purpose and a paycheck, are driving a huge surge of interest in meaningful "encore careers"--paid second acts in areas such as education, human services, the environment, and fighting poverty.…

McCall, Michael B. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2013
When colleges turned to online learning, they opened the door for a number of students who might have only dreamed of pursuing a degree or credential. In 2006, the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) surveyed prospective adult students without a college degree and discovered that they were three times more likely to enroll in…

Linderman, Donna; Kolenovic, Zineta – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2013
Despite enrolling almost half of all undergraduate students in the United States, community colleges have struggled for decades with low degree-completion rates. CUNY community colleges struggle with the challenge of low completion rates even when the degree timetable is expanded. According to the CUNY Office of Institutional Research and…

Navarro, Diego – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2012
Underprepared students come to community colleges and many four-year colleges because they have hope for a better life and the courage to attempt something difficult. But having dreams and aspirations is not enough: Without some sort of intervention and support, a student's chances of completing college are poor. Many challenged students…

Harper, Shaun R.; Kuykendall, John A. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2012
Black men's troubled status in higher education has garnered tremendous attention at national conferences, in the media, and in published scholarship over the past 15 years.
