The Community College Baccalaureate: Implications for Institutional Policy and Planning
While a growing number of community colleges across the country now offer their own baccalaureate degree programs, there is a dearth of empirical research examining how these programs impact the day-to-day operations of these colleges. This study presents survey data collected from 32 community college baccalaureate (CCB) institutions across the country and provides a deeper understanding of the changes to institutional policy and planning that are required when two-year colleges establish four-year degree programs. Findings give particular attention to the extent of changes required within the areas of human resources and campus services. Community college decision makers can apply these findings to more effectively plan for and manage baccalaureate offerings at their institution.
