The concept of Community Colleges has also the following watchwords Exploration Experience Empowerment Employment. The Community College movement began in 1995 in South India. It gained momentum and growth in the last 14 years. It has also a bright future in terms of empowering the thousands of disadvantaged and marginalized students. It has spread its wings through the whole of India as well as East Africa, South Africa, Papua New Guinea. While the movement was progressing, the entire dynamics of the movement was recorded and published as books and articles in various National and International Journals, Magazines and Newspapers.
