The issues we are addressing our community colleges are complex, with multifaceted solutions. These solutions require long-term, future oriented investments in our students and in our staffs. There is one additional theme, technology and its impact on our institutions, our students, and our profession. The implications of the rapidly changing technological environment in our society are touched upon in some way by every contributor.

– Toward Master Leadership: Strategies for Student Success – Columbia , MD – 1987

As a minimum, effective student success systems must include assessment, academic placement, advising, tracking and monitoring, and other effective intervention components.
