Ketchikan Community College
by Travis Kirkland


April 4, 2005

You are absolutely correct that as long as the local community college is subordinate to the faculty and administration of a 4-year college or university, the community college function will be a very distant second place.  Watch closely and you will hear arrogance and condescension.  If you want an effective community college, you will have to find a way to break away.  I know, I have been in two systems as CEO and had to fight for every thing you need and still be ignored.
Good luck.
