PROCEEDINGS OF THE ANNUAL UNIVERSITY-JUNIOR COLLEGE CONFERENCE (5TH, UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON, SEATTLE, JANUARY 31 - FEBRUARY 2, 1963).
GILES, FREDERIC T.
THESE PROCEEDINGS REFLECT THE UNIVERSITY'S GROWING CONCERN FOR THE TRANSFER STUDENT AND AN AWARENESS OF CERTAIN PROBLEMS THAT CAN BE COOPERATIVELY SOLVED. THE TRANSFER STUDENT'S STATUS WILL CONTINUE TO RISE AS STATE AND PROFESSIONAL GROUPS WORK TO INCREASE THE NUMBER AND QUALITY OF JUNIOR COLLEGES. WHILE EFFECTS OF CURRICULUM CHANGES ON THE PROSPECTIVE TRANSFER SHOULD BE MINIMIZED, ARTICULATION PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH SUCH CHANGES ARE COMPLEX, SINCE (1) STUDENTS COME FROM MANY KINDS OF INSTITUTIONS, (2) CHANGE IS A COMPLEX PROCESS EVEN WITHIN THE UNIVERSITY, WITHOUT INVOLVING OTHER AGENCIES, (3) THE PROCESS IS SO LENGTHY THAT NO TIME SEEMS REALLY APPROPRIATE FOR OUTSIDE DISCUSSION, (4) THE NEEDS OF THE TRANSFERS ARE CONSIDERED AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE DURING THE PROCESS, AND (5) COLLEGES, STUDENTS, AND THE COMMUNITY SHOULD BECOME AWARE THAT NOT ALL LOWER DIVISION PROGRAMS ARE INTERCHANGEABLE. THE CONFERENCE ALSO INCLUDED (1) A STUDY OF FACTORS AFFECTING THE PERFORMANCE OF TRANSFER STUDENTS, (2) STATISTICAL EXAMPLES AS PATTERNS FOR MORE COMPREHENSIVE, ADMINISTRATIVELY USEFUL STATISTICAL WORK, AND (3) DETAILED DISCUSSION OF (A) A JUNIOR COLLEGE COUNSELING AND GUIDANCE SERVICE, (B) CURRENT UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS, (C) ANTICIPATED EFFECTS ON PREREQUISITES OF THE INTRODUCTION OF A BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION PROGRAM AT THE UNIVERSITY, AND (D) A COMPARISON OF JUNIOR COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY COURSE CONTENT IN ENGINEERING AND RELATED FIELDS.
