EDHP 580 THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE Course Description: The system of higher education in the United States has trended toward an egalitarian approach, which strives for maximum inclusion in higher education. These efforts have included the two year community college system, which has offered career-oriented and liberal arts programs ranging from single semester certificates to two-year degree and transfer curriculum. These colleges have offered greater access to higher education through less restrictive, and sometimes open, enrollment practices. While an integral part of the higher education system, community colleges are not without their detractors, and continue to have internal and external discussions on the scope of their mission and/or purpose, their impact on social mobilization and the efficacy of their programs. These discussions are complicated even further by the diversity of the colleges and their students. Course Objectives: Learning objectives for this course include understanding the community college movement and history, curriculum, and types of administrative structures. Students will also learn about the goals of community colleges, their relationship to secondary and post-secondary educational institutions, and profiles of faculty and students. Through the evaluation of historical and current the context, the student will gain a thorough understanding of the community college system from the perspective of an educational professional. Sample Assignments: Investigation papers (4), and Final paper/presentation (group assignment).
