Summary
This volume will assist community college leaders in thinking about the future of their institutions by focusing on the trends in the labor markets most common to community college programming. The editors, both economists, bring their perspective to bear on the forces shaping those markets. Using data specially prepared by The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the authors consider long-run enployment projections for clusters of programs in the fields of interest to community college students. These fields include the health sciences, business, noncredit programs, protective services, and science, technology, engineeering and mathematics (STEM). A case study of California community colleges and an essay on the changing nature of transfer programs round out the volume
