building communities 1988
Building Communities - 1988
  • “At the center of building community there is teaching. Teaching is the heartbeat of the educational enterprise……”
  • “Building community through dedicated teaching is the vision and inspiration of this report.”
  • “The community college should be the nation’s premier teaching institution.”
bob barr 1994
Bob Barr - 1994

“It is revealing that virtually every mission statement contained in the catalogs in California’s 107 community colleges fails to use the word ‘learning’ in a statement of purpose but always uses the word ‘teaching.’ “

barr tagg 1995
Barr & Tagg - 1995

“In the Instruction Paradigm, the mission of the college is to provide instruction, to teach…….In the Learning Paradigm the mission of the college is to produce learning.”

“Oddly enough, the concept of learning—a subject that seems critical to every discussion about higher education—is often overlooked in the modern era. For us, learning doesn't just matter. It matters most of all. It's the learning, stupid.”

(Merisotis, 2009)

the pathway model because
The Pathway Model Because:
  • The Student Success Pathway provides a visible and integrated roadmap for the core business of the community college and should be used as the institutional framework for creating strategic and long-range plans.
  • The Student Success Pathway also provides a visible and integrated roadmap for students and should be used as the framework for their individual educational plans.
