Summary Are applied and workforce baccalaureate degrees offered by community colleges a natural extension of their mission to provide relevant educational programs to their constituents? Or is this emerging emphasis on offering baccalaureate degrees a radical deviation from the tried-and-true mission of comprehensive community college? In short, is this movement more evolutionary or revolutionary? This volume does not take sides on this controversial issue, but adds to the debate by providing a deeper understanding of this movement from the perspective of practitioners and scholars alike. The opportunities and challenges associated with offering these new baccalaureate degrees is illustrated with institutional examples.
