Exploring Diversity in Higher Education Management: History, Trends, and Implications for Community Colleges, 13(4)

  • Andree Robinson-Neal


As college and university campuses direct their efforts to include more diverse populations of students, campus leaders must consider whether there is merit in having a diverse population of administrators as well. The issue is of particular importance to the community college sector, since it is a primary point of entry into higher education for both traditional and nontraditional students. The issue of diversity at the community college administrative level will be explored through discussions on the history of community colleges and management theory, the changing demographic in higher education, and how the changes affect community college administration.
