Overview

The community college is poised to contribute beyond its own community to across the world. To do so—to advance the work for the betterment of students and communities—it must engage internationally while building capacity.

Recognizing the growing importance of educating students in a globalized world, this volume explores the community college in an international context. It addresses global ideals, values, competencies, and understanding in a local context and shows:

  • How individual community colleges have internationalized
  • How models and partnerships can aid progression to comprehensive internationalization
  • How international systems consider adoption and adaptation.

The authors point to a crucial vision for the future: Globalization has moved the U.S. community college steadily from international education as an add-on to international education as a choice, and now to international education as a crucial, integrated mission that has drawn increased interest from other nations intent on an educated, skilled citizenry. The community college is no longer about the United States; the community college is for all of us, a world phenomenon.

This is the 161st volume of this Jossey-Bass quarterly report series. Essential to 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 distinct and expanding educational mission.
