With a broadened purpose in academic preparation and greater commitment to promoting a wide range of career choices, "new vocationalism" in community colleges plays an increasingly prominent role in the new economy. This volume provides valued perspectives from practitioners on these emerging vocation education programs, both in terms of theory and practice, and highlights intriguing changes in the field. Chapters analyze the role of community college leaders in developing programs, successful partnerships and collaboration with communities, work-based learning, changes in perception of terminal education and transfer education, changing instructional practices for changing student populations and the integration of vocational education into the broader agenda of American higher education.

This is the 115th journal in the Jossey-Bass series New Directions for Community Colleges.
