Community colleges were established to provide an accessible, affordable education and have largely met this charge. Access without success, however, does not benefit the student and traditional planning, operational and financial management, and infinite enrollment growth strategies have not produced positive student outcomes. The Great Recession, disinvestment in higher education, and increasing costs and competition have further exacerbated the inability to deliver better results. Community colleges need an operational framework structured for student success. The community college needs a redesigned business model. This publication breaks new ground by introducing the community college business model (CCBM), an intentionally designed operational management approach that provides a comprehensive approach to understanding students and meeting student needs by providing an exceptional educational experience. Supported by a fiscal management that targets finances to support student learning and success, the model guides the reader through the growth, development, and leveraging of the resources (human, physical, and intellectual) necessary for delivering a successful educational journey. The CCBM is designed to restructure community colleges for delivery of a student value proposition built on learning and success. The philosophical underpinning of the book is that student success is the ultimate measure of organizational effectiveness.

Beyond Free College seeks greater investment in higher education by promoting a single metric--lower-cost-per-degree-granted--as the driver of a transfer pathway. The book aims to spur higher education advocates to reorganize the transfer function to serve neotraditional students in ways that advance completion, not just access to higher education.

Short-listed for the 2012 Speaker’s Award One hundred years ago, the City of Brantford advertised itself as the most important manufacturing centre in Canada. During the century that followed, its industrial economy boomed, faltered, and finally collapsed. By the end of the twentieth century, Brantford was known for unemployment, hard luck, and the infamy of having "the worst downtown in Canada." For twenty years the downtown was in steep decline. Significant attempts at urban revival had failed until Wilfrid Laurier University decided to locate a campus in the heart of Brantford’s crumbling city centre. Leo Groarke revisists the grandeur of the city’s past, explores the economic downfall, and tells the story of the arrival of the university, its early struggles, its commitment to historic restoration, and its ultimate success as a catalyst for urban renewal. The compelling story he recounts will engage anyone interested in the plight of the North-American city core and the role that universities and colleges can play in re-establishing downtowns as vibrant centres of historical and contemporary importance.

6 For-Profit Sector Innovations in Business Models and Organizational Cultures.
Author: Ben Wildavsky
Publisher: Harvard Education Press
The inspiration for this timely book is the pressing need for fresh ideas and innovations in U.S. higher education. At the heart of the volume is the realization that higher education must evolve in fundamental ways if it is to respond to changing professional, economic, and technological circumstances, and if it is to successfully reach and prepare a vast population of students—traditional and nontraditional alike—for success in the coming decades. This collection of provocative articles by leading scholars, writers, innovators, and university administrators examines the current higher education environment and its chronic resistance to change; the rise of for-profit universities; the potential future role of community colleges in a significantly revised higher education realm; and the emergence of online learning as a means to reshape teaching and learning and to reach new consumers of higher education. Combining trenchant critiques of current conditions with thought-provoking analyses of possible reforms and new directions, Reinventing Higher Education is an ambitious exploration of possible future directions for revitalized American colleges and universities.

The must-read summary of Robert Kriegel's book: "How to Succeed in Business Without Working So Damn Hard: Rethinking the Rules, Reinventing the Game". This complete summary of the ideas from Robert Kriegel's book "How to Succeed in Business Without Working So Damn Hard" shows that it’s possible to be more productive, create more profit and be happier by working less hours, but in a more direct way. This summary takes this principle and splits it into two guidelines: don’t conform, but rethink the way you work, and don’t compete against others. It also breaks down these principles into measures that every businessperson can apply. Exploit your strengths, for example, rather than trying to solve your weaknesses; make a serious effort to halve your number of meetings; look at business ideas outside of your industry, and think how they could be applied. In short, look carefully at your market’s assumptions, and your personal ones, and challenge whether they are effective, could be done more quickly or need to be done at all. Added-value of this summary: • Save time • Understand the key concepts • Increase your business knowledge To learn more, read "How to Succeed in Business Without Working So Damn Hard" and discover how to work better, not harder.
