"Once in a while, a book forces us to reconsider the fundamentals of our practices and that book is Working with Students in Community Colleges. This volume fills a void in the current literature and is a must read for anyone struggling to understand the current dilemmas in community colleges. It will inform and prepare graduate students in higher education administration, counseling, and student affairs programs. Faculty and graduate students can build on research questions introduced in this volume. This volume is an indispensable tool in the administrator's toolkit and will be well used as we go boldly into the future."--Stephanie R. Bulger, District Vice Chancellor of Educational Affairs
"This book sheds light on multiple areas in which America's community colleges are being shaped by the

multitude of missions (academic, political, social, economic) continually assigned to them. Administrators,

faculty, and professional staff at any institution of higher education as well as city, county, state, and federal

officials who are invested in higher education in their locale would do well to read this book to learn how to

understand, support, and look closer at students in their community."--Reflective Teaching, Wabash Center (12/01/2016)

"This is a valuable resource that will help readers to understand community colleges and the needs and characteristics of their students as well as help to gauge how agile and responsive these colleges are to demands and changes.

These chapters provide a timely and valuable resource for the array of professionals working to adapt and evolve their practices in an exciting and challenging time for community colleges. The comprehensive treatment of institutional operations and student progress makes this reading an important resource for practitioners, administrators, and faculty. In addition, this book provides insightful strategies and recommendations for strengthening student services and identifying internal and external barriers for change and partnerships.

If you embrace our responsibility to serve the community college student sector effectively, you will turn the pages of this book with the realization that it is a necessary instrument for the community college professional's toolbox."--Susan Salvador, Vice President of Student Services
