The New Directions for Community Colleges series offers practical recommendations on current trends in the field of community college education. With fully indexed and self-contained edited volumes, New Directions for Community Colleges includes contributions from community college leaders and researchers through evidence-based and research-oriented accounts that shape policy and practice.

Topics proposed for New Directions for Community Colleges need to be accessible for a broad base of readers, be based in scholarship, but provide strong applications to practice, and relate to key issues and problems faced by presidents, vice presidents, deans, directors, and faculty leaders in today’s open-door, ever-changing institutions. The ideal topics include but are not limited to the following subject areas: access and equity, community colleges, junior colleges, two-year colleges, adult education, historically underrepresented students, student success, leadership and mission, higher education and education policy. Usually, issue editors are recognized scholars in the field, have a record of publication, and preferably have some type of editorial experience.
