In celebration of its 45th anniversary, the Community College of Rhode Island announces
the release of a new book, an illustrative history of the state's only community college. Called "Community College of Rhode Island: An Illustrated History, The Rhode Island
Junior College Years," the book chronicles the development of the college from its
foundation in 1964 as Rhode Island Junior College through the institution's name change
in 1980 to Community College of Rhode Island.
The 48-page book includes biographies of founding faculty and administrators and was
written and produced by two former staff members of the college's Marketing and Communications Department.
A limited edition of 500 copies of the book were printed and are available for sale.
Proceeds from all book sales will support a scholarship for a student studying the
arts at the college.
