Booklets

The Quest for Student Success at Community Colleges is Inside Higher Ed's latest compilation of articles.

As with other such print-on-demand booklets, the compilation groups together pieces that explore different strategies used by faculty members and institutions -- and efforts to track their success.

The booklet is free and you may download a copy here.

And you may sign up here for a free webinar on Wednesday, March 25, at 2 p.m. Eastern about the themes of the booklet.

This booklet was made possible in part through the advertising support of ETS.

But then, some professional athletes behave very unprofessionally and seem to have little concern for excellence or the level of their performances. Some professionals provide tangible services others need, and they have the tools (intellectual and materiel) to get the job done. Of course, they have skills which a relatively few possess.
