Wladis, Claire; Mesa, Vilma – Review of Higher Education, 2019
Although the majority of college freshmen enroll at community colleges, very few research studies focus on this context. In addition, what research does exist often overlooks important practitioner concerns, such as instruction. In this article we argue that supporting generalizable education research conducted by community college practitioners…

Little empirical research has systematically focused on, or interrogated, the labor expectations set forth for community college faculty.

Hatch, Deryl K.; Garcia, Crystal E. – Review of Higher Education, 2017
Given community colleges' open enrollment policies and their numerous instructional missions (A. M. Cohen & Brawer, 2008), students enter and re-enter with various and often multiple objectives but not always with clear knowledge of how to clarify and accomplish them. Among early intake activities, the role of academic advising in particular…
