Finkel, Ed – Community College Journal, 2018
State community college systems and their two-year colleges have spent the 2010s reexamining and redesigning decades-old developmental education tracks to ensure students get what they need--and only what they need--with an eye toward moving them more quickly into college-level courses and, eventually, the degree or certificate they want.…

Finkel, Ed – Community College Journal, 2018
Many community colleges have been in their communities for decades, and some take it for granted that campus stakeholders, prospective students and their families, and the public at large understands who they are and what they do. But like entities of all kinds, community colleges are becoming increasingly aware of the need to forge a consciously…

Boerner, Heather – Community College Journal, 2016
Six years ago, Front Range Community College President Andy Dorsey sat down with his team and looked at the college's completion and graduation rates. Like a lot of colleges, they were in for a shock. It is not that they had expected to see 80 percent completion rates. But they certainly were not expecting to see only 43 percent of their students…

Boerner, Heather – Community College Journal, 2014
As community colleges strive to meet President Obama's call to graduate 50 percent more college students by 2020, there is no shortage of promising ideas. But, as educators are learning, not all programs scale. Bringing completion programs to scale requires a fundamental shift in the culture of the college, away from enrollment and toward success.…

Butterman, Eric; Murray, Corey – Community College Journal, 2014
College is getting harder to afford every year. Debt mounts and jobs, especially in certain industries, don't necessarily provide the financial return they once did. It should come as no surprise to administrators that students and families are feeling the pinch. Rather than ignore the problem, higher education leaders, policymakers, and others…

Woods, Bob – Community College Journal, 2014

Skari, Lisa; Ullman, Ellen – Community College Journal, 2012
Community colleges for a long time have operated under the misguided assumption that they should not waste time or resources prospecting and cultivating their alumni in hopes of generating philanthropic support. How could two-year colleges possibly compete with the success of alumni giving at four-year universities--with their selective admissions…

Hermes, Jim – Community College Journal, 2012
As college completion becomes a priority, more state legislatures are challenging community colleges to demonstrate progress by tying funding measures to institutional performance.

Violino, Bob – Community College Journal, 2012
For many community college executives, working with professional unions is part of the responsibility of leading an institution of higher learning. Relationships with unions can range from productive and civil to contentious and hostile. College officials must aim to strike a balance between maintaining decorum and fostering strong ties with…

McClenney, Kay; Oriano, Angela – Community College Journal, 2012
Community colleges are dealing with, and often leading, a historical shift from a 100-year focus on access to a new emphasis on access "and" student success. The impetus for this work comes from many directions--the president of the United States and the secretary of education, at least 30 governors, other state policymakers, the…

Giltner, Terri – Community College Journal, 2012
As the number of two- and four-year college options available to community members grows, so too does the competition among institutions of higher education to land new students. Expectations are high. Today's students want more than a quality education. They also want a college with a service culture--one that works with them to create an…

Wong, Wylie – Community College Journal, 2012
Students and teachers are increasingly embracing tablets and e-book readers in their personal lives, but do these devices have a place on community college campuses?

Wendling, Bridget Gorman – Community College Journal, 2011
As community colleges continue to experience record enrollments, administrators must face the challenges of growth. The unprecedented growth in community college enrollment is due to both the rising expense of higher education at four-year institutions and the number of people returning to school to train for careers in higher demand. However,…

Budd, Steven – Community College Journal, 2011
The current discourse on community college leadership makes much ado about the "new normal," or the collective influence of the social, economic, and political conditions under which people advance their organizations. To succeed in a changed environment, community colleges--many confronted with drastic budget cuts--must find ways to raise money…
