The instructors aren’t people who just applied for the random job on the internet; they were handpicked because they are the experts in the field. To develop future leaders in community colleges, aspiring leaders must be allowed to learn from the current leaders. This program has given many that opportunity. The face to face classes were great; they taught individuals to speak up and be heard.

– Tynisha McGee, Wayne County Community College District (MI)

Those of us serving community college students know why we’re here. We believe that all people should have an opportunity to improve their lives through education. The leaders of the Roueche graduate program understand and infectiously share that same passion. The program introduces us to amazing faculty and guest speakers who share the lessons learned, ideas born, and philosophies developed over years of experience. The program’s blended learning format affords students an opportunity to work on assignments, have real-time discussions, meet remarkable people and still maintain a professional career. The coursework is appropriately challenging so that we develop the tools to fulfill our vision for higher education.

– Sharon Hyak, South Texas

I transferred from a traditional program to the John Roueche Community College Doctorate Program. The program is designed to allow students to interface with an extensive roster of seasoned CEO's and thought leaders transforming Community College's today, which has been invaluable and priceless!

– CharMaine Hines, Wayne County Community College District (MI)

I feel challenged to expand my inquiry and knowledge in the KSU CCLP program. The program provides me with support and keeps me motivated. The experience that stands out for me is having faculty members challenge us to use data to tell our story.
