Globalizing the Community College: Strategies for Change in the Twenty-First Century Hardcover – April 6, 2001
From Library Journal
Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc.
'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.
