A look at Trends Report Issued by the League For Innovation in The Community College

For the better part of the past decade, the community college movement has been hurtling forward at breakneck speed. The completion agenda, the demands for accountability, the disinvestment by state governments, the need to build educational ecosystems with K-12 and regional universities — all of these have community college leaders suffering from a kind of initiative fatigue. It might be time for the sector to slow down, take a look around and adjust the GPS to make sure it is moving in the right direction. That’s one of the conclusions of the ninth annual Trends Report issued by the League for Innovation in the Community College. The report, based on a survey of 1,050 college and campus leaders, found that several trends that have emerged over the past several years have been cemented: the completion agenda has taken hold, ties with high schools and universities are tighter than ever before, data is being used in ways seldom contemplated just a few years ago. We take a look at the report and talk with its authors, Gerardo de los Santos and Mark Milliron.
