Description

A ground swell of activism on campus is underway to recognize a wider understandings of gender, to support long time marginalized populations, and to open up leadership pipelines that result in a reflection of the populations community colleges serve—which include women, minorities, and diverse stakeholders.

This issue expands on the research regarding the stubborn persistence of the glass ceiling and thinking about constructions of gender, inclusivity, and strategies to advance equity for all. Tackling new and extended conceptions of gender to include issues facing the LGBTQ community; it:
  • highlights the intersections of race and gender,
  • addresses how gender performance continues to influence the experiences of men and women in the 2-year college sector,
  • presents strategies for supporting women leaders
  • updates readers on the Clery Act on campus, and
  • includes strategies for inclusivity.

    This is the 179th volume of this Jossey-Bass quarterly report series. Essential to the professional libraries of presidents, vice presidents, deans, and other leaders in today's open-door institutions, New Directions for Community Colleges provides expert guidance in meeting the challenges of their distinctive and expanding educational mission.
