ABSTRAKT

This special issue provides a greater understanding of the role of community colleges in broadening participation among women and minorities in STEM fields. The objectives of this issue are to (i) address the diverse functions of community colleges and their roles in providing access and opportunity for women and ethnic minorities to pursue STEM education, (ii) understand the role of community colleges as a pathway to a baccalaureate degree and beyond in STEM fields, (iii) investigate the role of career and technical education programs in community colleges in educating and training the twenty-first century workforce, and (iv) discuss the implications for policy and practice, and recommendations for future research.
