Reviews

"A significant contribution to the field of community college leadership. Pamela Eddy has written a book that will prove to be useful to current leaders as they continue to learn and to improve their effectiveness. Her audience also includes aspiring leaders who want to learn more about career pathways and how to overcome barriers. Scholars of leadership development, policy makers, and, in general, those who are concerned about the future of America's community colleges, and who will lead them, will find this book to be valuable and thought provoking."--From the Foreword by George R. Boggs, President and CEO of the American Association of Community Colleges in Washington, DC, and Superintendent/President Emeritus
"Pamela L. Eddy's Community College Leadership: A Multidimensional Model for Leading Change deserves our time for two simple reasons: first, the multidimensional model for leading change transcends community colleges and is applicable broadly within and beyond education; and, second, the author's thoughtful inclusion of vignettes and case studies provides the day-today grounding to make her model relevant to readers of all professions. Yes, community college readers have the advantage of knowing many of the leadership challenges firsthand and will be more interested than most in sections such as "Challenges of Community College Leadership," but this book adds sufficiently to leadership literature that it should find itself on the bookshelves of professionals across education and the private sector."-- (01/01/2011)
