Overview: The outsourcing of instruction at community colleges to independent firms is a growing but still limited practice, and thus far it has been largely confined to non-credit courses. The ""contracting out"" of other services, such as food services, has been a longstanding and accepted way for colleges to meet some of their ancillary needs efficiently, but outsourcing instruction is quite controversial, and many factors determine its usefulness. This paper discusses outsourcing of instruction at community colleges and difficulties faced by community colleges in their attempts to outsource instruction.
