Wheelhouse: The Center for Community College Leadership and Research

Wheelhouse: The Center for Community College Leadership and Research


July Institute Wheelhouse 2020-21 Fellows Group Photo Wheelhouse supports leadership and practice in the California Community Colleges, the nation’s largest system of higher education. We accomplish that mission in two ways: 

Leadership/Network Development:  Our Institute on Leadership delivers professional and peer learning for annual, select cohorts of Wheelhouse Fellows—district chancellors and college presidents. We focus on leading for equity, purposeful disruption, individual and organizational agility, research and policy know-how. Throughout, we build lasting peer networks. Learn more about the Institutes here.

Actionable Research:  We support and cultivate a statewide scholar network, bringing research to practice through timely, digestible, independent briefs to decision-maker audiences at the state, regional and local levels.

Our work is led by a diverse and committed team and counseled by a Board of Advisors composed of long-time leaders in community college practice and research. We are supported by UC Davis, the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, and private philanthropy.
