Description
Ken Davids talks about his contributions to the major transition at CCAC in the early and mid 80s. He identifies the problems that CCAC faced in the late 70s: budget and enrollment crises, accreditation issues, and discusses the changes he played a part in that allowed the institution to thrive again. These include: starting the Extension Program, implementing increased marketing, introducing the Core Program, and working on budget and salary cuts in a year long retrenchment that by 1984 had turned the college around. He discusses the end of Harry Ford’s presidency and working with succeeding presidents Toby Schwartzburg and Neil Hoffman and about how he views the college today, in 2014.
