This collection of essays discusses various issues surrounding the community college and its future success. Chapter 1, "Our Present, Your Future" (Marguerite M. Culp), describes the current reality in community colleges, discussing challenges and offering projections for the future that student services administrators in both two- and four-year colleges can use to organize professional practice. Chapter 2, "The Student Success Imperative" (Steven R. Helfgot), emphasizes the need to organize professional practice, describing the Student Success Imperative, noting the failure of some major professional initiatives to acknowledge the nontraditional college student. Chapter 3, "Translating Theory to Practice" (Linda Reisser), examines the role of theory in working with nontraditional students, translating it into everyday practice. Chapter 4, "Infiltrating Academe" (Marguerite M. Culp), discusses the inter-relatedness between student affairs and academic affairs. Chapter 5, "Nests for Dreams, Backdrops for Visions: Making a Difference with Students" (Jack J. Becherer and Janna Hoekstra Becherer), offers examples of successful community college programs. Chapter 6, "Tools for Tomorrow: Re-envisioning the Student Body" (Steven R. Helfgot), introduces a series of short essays on the tools that will be required for successful student affairs practice into the new century. (Each chapter contains references.) (YKH)

Unexpectedly, Nigel's story is published, and he quickly becomes a celebrity. This booklet is designed to be used by facilitators of the Canadian Career Development Foundation's "The Leading Edge: A Career Development Workshop Series for Young Adults." The guide provides information, including objectives of the workshops and lists of required materials, needed in order to facilitate an introductory session as well as the six workshops in the series. Each section contains samples of material suitable for transparencies to be used in the workshops. The six workshops are: "Setting the Stage: The Changing World of Work," designed to help clarify the world of work and apply that understanding to personal career development; "Recognizing Your Leading Edge," designed to initiate a shift from traditional job search to self-marketing; "Powerful Resume Writing," which maximizes the effectiveness of this key component of the work search; "Pro-Active Work Search Tools," which aims to build skills supporting nontraditional work search techniques such as information interviewing, networking, and proposal writing; "Your Leading Edge in Action," which focuses interview skills and introduces professional portfolios; and "Consolidation: Planning the Next Steps of the Journey," which integrates information into a personally meaningful sense of career development. The program goals are to help participants "get the big picture" in focus and determine how this relates to them personally and professionally. (Contains 14 references.)
