    schema:description "The community college, positioned as it is to be flexible, adaptive, open, and focused on student success, is poised to contribute across the world. To do so, to advance the work for the betterment of students and communities, it must engage internationally while buidling capacity. The purpose of this volume is to explore the community college in an international context. The authors address the needs and interests of scholars in the field and leaders on the front line of educating students in a globalized world. The contributors are deeply committed to the essential work of community colleges in the world, addressing global ideals, values, competencies, and understanding in a local context. To this end, they reflect on how individual community colleges have internationalized, how models and partnerships can aid progression to comprehensive internationalization, and how international systems consider adoption and adaptation. They point to a crucial vision for the future: globalization has moved the U.S. community college steadily from international education as an add-on to international education as a choice, and now to international education as a crucial, integrated mission that has drawn increased interest from other nations intent on an educated, skilled citizenry. The community college is no longer about the United States; the community college is for all of us, a world phenomenon."@en ;
