Up and Running : Starting and Growing a Leadership Program at a Community College Paperback / softback
Community colleges are facing a leadership crisis spurred by the retirements of baby boomers from leadership positions at all levels.
There is a critical need to prepare leaders to deal with 21st century challenges, such as dramatically improving student outcomes, tackling funding issues, and addressing college affordability.
There is also growing recognition that having internal candidates prepared to take on leadership roles may lead to a smoother leadership transition.

Tobia and Judith L. Gay is a roadmap for creating a leadership program to meet the needs of colleges as well as the professional interests of employees.
