Jordan’s most recent book, Establishing an Experimental Community College in the United States: Challenges, Successes, and Implications for Higher Education, narrates the planning and operational stages of Guttman Community College and how lessons can be drawn from the college’s early history that might inform other systems looking to create reform at-scale.
