The focus in student tracking today has shifted away from anexamination of prospective students and students in academicdifficulty, and toward an understanding of student progress throughand beyond a single college or university. This new emphasisresults from a variety of pressures: state and public calls foraccountability, accreditation criteria that place greater attentionon learning outcomes, recognition that enrollment does not ensuresuccess, and an understanding that many students swirl throughmultiple institutions.

This is the 143rd volume of the Jossey-Bass higher educationquarterly report series NewDirections for Community Colleges. Essential to theprofessional libraries of presidents, vice presidents, deans, andother leaders in today's open-door institutions, NewDirections for Community Colleges provides expert guidancein meeting the challenges of their distinctive and expandingeducational mission.
