In The Press

In this book, Richard Romano and Jim Palmer have produced what will become the gold standard in community college finance research for years to come. In this concise volume, they connect the world of finance to a host of current issues and challenges: from college quality, affordability, access, and outcomes straight through to mission of the community college itself. Reviewing thirty years of finance and policy research, and applying important findings to future projections, Romano and Palmer have written a must read for two-year college boards, administrators, scholars, and any stakeholder interested in how we might effectively manage resources and influence public policy in our turbulent political environment.
