Case Study of a Community College Grow Your Own (GYO) Leaders Program
Community colleges across the nation are facing a critical void in leadership due to the retirements of baby boomer presidents and vice presidents who started their careers some decades ago. This study explored the results of a “grow your own” GYO succession planning program in recruiting and preparing employees for career advancement. A qualitative case study was conducted to gain an understanding of the GYO program participants' experiences in the program, the impact of the program on their career advancement behaviors, and the effectiveness of the program in filling the leadership pipeline. The AACC Competencies for Community College Leaders and two of Malcolm Knowles' assumptions on andragogy were used as theoretical frameworks to guide this investigation. Results indicated the program was more of an “orientation” to the college district than leadership training.
