“… the sizable majority seem to have turned to a community college as their means of entering Canadian society and eventually its economy.”
“These principles include institutional responsiveness to community needs, the maintenance of a comprehensive curriculum, institutional emphasis upon teaching and providing services to students, and the articulation, if not necessarily the application of democratic values in institutional governance.” (p. 105) (per Levin and Dennison 1989)
“The instructional use of the Web has exploded over the past decade, and courses with online components have become the norm in many Canadian universities.” (p. 93)
This paper reflects on the responses of two members of a Canadian community college to questions about themselves and about the college. The participants discussed their current roles and activities within the college. They described their views regarding the role of the college within its community. They considered and described their thoughts on how the college could address issues that the college may be facing.
