Ohio's state government is contemplating allowing community colleges (CC) to offer baccalaureate degree programs: https://www.insidehighered.com/news...-offer-bachelors-degrees-and-access-state-aid Crucially, CC may not increase credit hour tuition for a 4-year degree. Clearly, this could result in dramatic enrollment decreases at 4-year institutions (such as mine) especially in liberal arts programs but also for nursing, psychology, and business/accounting programs. I know there's some folks here who teach at CC, I'm interested to hear any first-person accounts about how this actually works. For example, are CC held to the same accreditation standards as 4-year institutions? How this arrangement has impacted the usual pipeline relationship between CC and 4-year universities? How do Universities differentiate themselves from CC?
