Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Based on a comparative study of the influences of globalization and globalizing trends on community colleges in the United States and Canada from 1996 to 1999, this timely report offers much to expand the reader's purview. Levin, a professor of higher education at the University of Arizona and a former community college administrator and instructor, looks at seven community colleges that have undergone organizational change in response to globalization and discusses the effects in the economic, cultural, and information domains. His forthright argument, pointing out both pros and cons, makes for an enlightening read that will surely stimulate further discussion. The theme of the community college as a social institution becoming a global center for education will also appeal to sociology teachers and students. Essential reading for college presidents, chief academic and finance officers, development and research directors, governing boards, and anyone interested in higher education, this is recommended for academic libraries, community college resource centers, and public libraries with educational reform and globalization collections. Leroy Hommerding, Fort Myers P.L. Dist., FL

'As it is thought of primarily as a local institution, one might not think that the community college would be affected significantly by globalization. However, in a path breaking study in two countries, Professor Levin shows that the community college has been affected in profound and diverse ways by the forces of globalization. In addition to dissecting the impacts of globalization, this book also provides such valuable insights into the organizational dynamics of community colleges that it is a must read for anyone interested in the management of community colleges.' - Michael L. Skolnik

The William G. Davis Chair in Community College Leadership, University of Toronto

'As John Levin demonstrates, globalization and academic capitalism are as pervasive in community colleges as in universities, and the two are re-shaping the mission of the community college as well as the opportunities available to students. Community colleges are entrepreneurial actors on a global stage, trading in international students, marketers of global educational products, and markets for multinational corporations. This book is a break-through in community college scholarship, moving beyond the boundaries of college, state and nation, and into issues of organization of knowledge at two year schools in a global economy.' - Sheila Slaughter and Larry Leslie, authors of Academic Capitalism: Politics, Policies and the Entrepreneurial University

'Levin's design and approach are sound and sufficiently documented to lend support to the findings in this book.' - Educational Researcher

'...among those who care about the role and future of community colleges, Levin's work belongs on your shelf.' - Chad M. Hanson, The Journal of Higher Education

'...an important work...' - Susan Salvador, Journal of College Student Development

La comunidad educativa habia esperado por mucho tiempo contar con un libro como el que acaba de publicar el Dr. John S. Levin. Su trabajo resume con mucha precision los principales retos, lecciones aprendidas y direcciones futuras que el sistema de Colegios Comunitarios tendra en el futuro proximo.
El trabajo de John S. Levin es una aportacion novedosa, inteligente y que aporta bases para una concienzuda reflexion acerca del sistema intermedio de educacion superior. Su lectura es no solo util para los Estados Unidos y Canada, sino tambien para paises de America Latina que estan buscando desarrollar sus sistemas de educacion superior intermedia, como es el caso de Mexico.
