The presenter, Ms. Linda S. Bowman, is President Emerita of the Community College of Aurora and currently serves as Vice President for Executive Leadership Training and Development for the Colorado Community College System. She has spent over 25 years in American community colleges, including 13 as president, as well as adjunct faculty, campus director, dean, vice president, and vice president of the state-wide system. Previously, she worked 12 years in private U.S. colleges, including six as president.

Almost 40% of American high school graduates start their college education at community colleges. Globally, an increasing number of international students attend American community colleges as a stepping stone to prestigious 4-year colleges and universities.  What are the benefits of attending a community college and which students are a good fit for this path? The seminar will cover the quality, articulation agreements, and accreditation of community colleges and allow ample time for questions and discussion.
