Much confusion exists over the ways in which community colleges can address workforce preparation while fulfilling traditional educational goals. A Sourcebook for Reshaping the Community College clarifies this issue by identifying seven "domains of competency" that synthesize (1) the needs expressed by employers, (2) the skills students need to progress through postsecondary education and the labor market, and (3) the knowledge that educators have always wanted for their students. The authors also discuss implementation strategies that have proven successful. Volume II offers exemplary curricula from community colleges and technical institutes across the nation. Educators at all community colleges and technical institutes will find this sourcebook useful in planning and implementing workforce development reforms.
