This Practice-Research-Policy Exchange seeks to promote a two-way loop between practitioners and researchers. To that end, the project will be in two phases.

  • First, we will work with practitioners to identify the research topics they think are most important and relevant to their day-to-day leadership responsibilities. Once identified, those research topics – a first-of-its-its kind national community college research agenda – will be posted here.
  • Second, this research agenda will be broadly shared with researchers, faculty members, doctoral students, post-doctorate fellows and others to encourage research studies that respond to the needs of practitioners. A preliminary draft is shared below.
