Book Description

This volume explores and begins to unravel the complexities of gender issues confronting men and women in two-year institutions. The authors address a wide range of questions that frame the current challenges facing community colleges, and provide thoughtful discussions of the gender-related experiences of female and male students, staff, faculty and administrators. The chapters blend evidence from personal narratives and survey results and offer recommendations that will help community colleges across the board, from serving students struggling with identity issues to institutionalizing fairness in hiring and promotion.
