Community Colleges' Responses to COVID-19 Era and Challenges of Change

The Community College Journal of Research and Practice (CCJRP), a scholarly peer reviewed journal that published original research and scholarship about community colleges is pleased to announce a call for manuscripts for a special issue on the response to COVID-19. Researchers and practitioner scholars are invited to submit research and scholarly articles for inclusion.

The aim of this special issue is to document community colleges responses to the challenges of change during the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S. and abroad. In response to Floyd’s (2021, https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/10668926.2020.1841649) call to action documenting effective practices and strategies, this collection of articles aims to succinctly provide perspectives of what worked, what did not work, and other commentary such as lessons that were learned and recommendations about the future in a post-COVID-19 era.

The CCJRP is especially interested in practitioner, research, and scholarly articles in the following thematic areas: leadership, curriculum, funding, social and racial tension, technology and digital access, self, family and community, and health and safety.
