In recognition of the many valuable contributions K. Patricia Cross has made to community college teaching and learning, the League is pleased to announce The Cross Papers Fellowship. Supported by a gift from K. Patricia Cross, the fellowship continues and builds on the outstanding success and renowned usability of The Cross Papers. Each year the K. Patricia Cross Fellowship names a scholar/practitioner of community college teaching and learning as The Cross Papers Fellow.
Since the release of the inaugural issue of The Cross Papers in 1997, community college educators have used these monographs as tools for stimulating discussion, providing orientation and training to new faculty and staff, rejuvenating veteran employees, and designing successful practices and strategies for reaching the diverse groups of students who come through the open doors of community colleges every day. The League applauds the work of K. Patricia Cross and seeks through this fellowship to continue her legacy of professional development focused on community college teaching and learning.
