Creating the 21st Century Community College: Aligning Policy and Practice to Increase Student Success and Meet Workforce Needs (session #348)
Fulfilling expectations to maintain access, ensure success and respond to regional workforce needs in a time of limited resources requires community colleges to be more innovative and entrepreneurial. This session will examine how community colleges can align their efforts to effectively balance their commitment to access, success and workforce preparation. Those in attendance will examine how policymakers, community college leaders and business leaders can work together to develop policy and implement strategies to achieve all three of these important goals.
