Description:

There is a need for a resource that brings together the latest information on community college students, faculty, governance, administration, finance, curriculum, and out-comes. This book updates the information included in the fourth edition, noting major changes in college emphasis and organization. All chapters have been revised and updated with new material added to reflect recent developments. The essential resource for community college administrators and trustees, the book has also been adopted as a textbook in numerous higher education courses in university graduate programs for the past twenty-five years.
