Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to determine why and how a large multi-campus community college created a campus to specifically meet non-traditional needs of students. The structures at this campus were different because its students did not have same needs for traditional education as students attending traditional campuses. The study of the context of this non-traditional campus can assist other institutions considering the development of such an entity. Case study and qualitative research methods were used to reveal the assumptions, beliefs, and factors that led to the development of the campus, the processes used, and the perceptions that it served non-traditional needs effectively. Document analysis, observations, and interviews were used to describe the structures in place and the perceptions of its degree of success in accomplishing its goal. The findings of the study revealed that the need for non-traditional education existed. Different structures and a separate campus facilitated and enhanced the creativity and freedom necessary to develop alternative programs and methods to deliver education for students, businesses, and other partners.
