About the Journal

The Community College Enterprise (formerly Michigan Community College Journal) is a refereed journal that encourages work primarily from community college educators and administrators. Issues are published in Fall and Spring. The journal publishes papers on topics such as: alternative learning strategies, learning, student success, retention, developmental education, leadership, teaching and learning strategies, and interactive learning. Each piece must define the context, a concern, an approach, and a solution.
