I am interested in any examples of innovative organizational
structures that have been proposed for small (2,000 student)
comprehensive community colleges. Traditionally program and/or
departments are discipline focused (such as Nursing, Office
Administration, Early Childhood Education, etc.). Has anyone out
there seen any creative alternative groupings or organizational
realignments designed to foster a learning or TQM organization?
It is hard to break out of the traditional disciplinary view -
which does seem to have some positive characteristics.
Furthermore, Im more interested in practical examples rather
untried theoretical models, however, any feedback would be greatly
