Community colleges now function in an era of extraordinary global sociopolitical, economic, and communications connectivity. Intellectual capital, workforce effectiveness and productivity are valued. Hence, community colleges and their global counterparts have become a key vehicle of economic development and for educating their residents across cultures.
