Historically, community colleges have served societal and functional missions that expanded over time, with the result of trying to achieve multiple goals for multiple audiences. This volume explores the forces currently shaping community college missions and the resulting tension between stated goals, assumed goals, and achievement of those goals. In an era of increasing accountability, tighter coupling, and the need to do ever more with fewer resources, mission focus is vital to college survival.
Explore such issues as:
  • the unspoken social contract,
  • transfer,
  • developmental education,
  • noncredit education,
  • dual enrollment,
  • workforce development,
  • the free college movement, and
  • planning for the future.
    The topics are explored thoughtfully from both scholarly and practical perspectives, highlighting the forces that shape community college missions.

    This is the 180th volume of this Jossey-Bass quarterly report series. Essential to the professional libraries of presidents, vice presidents, deans, and other leaders in today's open-door institutions, New Directions for Community Colleges provides expert guidance in meeting the challenges of their distinctive and expanding educational mission.
