Understanding Community Colleges
Understanding Community Colleges provides a comprehensive review of the community college landscape--management and governance, finance, student demographics and development, teaching and learning, policy, faculty, and workforce development--and bridges the gap between research and practice. This contributed volume brings together highly respected scholars in the field who rely upon substantial theoretical perspectives--critical theory, social theory, institutional theory, and organizational theory--for a rich and expansive analysis of community colleges. The latest text to publish in the Core Concepts in Higher Education series, this exciting new text fills a gap in the higher education literature available for students enrolled in Higher Education and Community College graduate programs.
This text provides students with:
A review of salient research related to the community college field.
Critical theoretical perspectives underlying current policies.
An understanding of how theory links to practice, including focused end-of-chapter discussion questions.
A fresh examination of emerging issues and insight into contemporary community college practices and policy.
