Abstract:This practitioner's chapter explains how the establishment of a community college system in Papua New Guinea finds its champion in the country's Prime Minister, Sir Michael Somare. This chapter also presents a veritable “how to” perspective on beginning a community college system by combining the vision from a government official with the contributions of a practitioner in the field such as Father Alphonse, who established the organic community college system in India. The author presents an argument in his chapter about how the union of theory and practice will combat unemployment, serve as an alternative entrance point for higher education, and will promote a responsible citizenry. The community college system in Papua New Guinea will, like in other examples in this section, endeavor to educate traditionally underserved populations, such as school leavers, rural youth, and women who are destitute.
