The institutional alignment close to industry, high level of accountability, and rapid response to local needs all contribute to a dynamic environment in which the institution's strategy related to technology management takes on critical dimensions, particularly the need to collaborate across institutional lines, such as academic services, student services, human resources, and financial services. Community college leaders are seeking ways to better leverage technology for business solutions, institutional research, student and organizational learning, and communications. Decisions such as who to include in decision making, how to balance maintenance and innovation, and what technologies to adopt have a deep impact on institutions, reaching far beyond the technology itself. The purpose of this volume is to explore technology management from a variety of vantage points. Authors represent community college leadership, chief information officers, faculty, researchers, and scholars. Their insights provide strong rationale for greater care in planning, budgeting, and utilizing technology, recognizing the challenges of rapid technological change.
