In What Excellent Community Colleges Do, Joshua S. Wyner draws on the insights and evidence gained in administering the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence.

By identifying initiatives that align with valued outcomes, Wyner seeks to contribute to the growing body of knowledge about improving student success in community colleges.
