Book Reviews:

“Every community college administrator interested in leading with positive purpose should read this book. With detail and clarity, Stetson tells the stories of community colleges who have intentionally engaged in doing more of what they do well and the remarkable results they get when they do so. It’s a book about the best practices colleges can engage in to discover their own best practices.”

University of Arkansas Community College at Hope

“I found Nancy Stetson’s 2008 book on AI in community colleges to be an excellent resource while I researched colleges or universities who are using AI as part of their regional accreditation self-studies or related activities.”
John Thibodeau
