Summary
  • "Provides 14 profiles of innovative and transformational leadership at community colleges. The experience and knowledge shared by the contributors demonstrate how community colleges are adapting creatively to rapidly changing economies, technologies, and education standards"--Provided by publisher
  • Of all the segments of American higher education, community colleges have been the most flexible, the most responsive to the educational needs of communities, and the most resourceful, taking calculated risks and leveraging scarce resources to accomplish their educational missions. The innovative and creative spirit of these unique institutions is captured well by the authors of The Creative Community College : Leading Change Through Innovation. The colleges and systems that are profiled in this volume are exemplary of what is wonderful about community colleges and how they can turn adversity into success. But this book is really about leadership: creative and transformational leadership. Each of the chapters tells a story of unique challenges and equally unique responses by community college leaders who built alliances, systems, and programs, often facing significant obstacles and even active resistance. In the Creative Community College, these leaders share their successes, their failures, and the risks they took to strengthen their institutions, to build alliances with school systems, and to create new systems
