COOPERATION BETWEEN TWO-YEAR AND FOUR-YEAR COLLEGES.
BLOCKER, CLYDE E.
GROWING ATTENTION TO ARTICULATION AMONG JUNIOR AND SENIOR COLLEGES HAS RESULTED FROM THE INCREASED NUMBER OF COLLEGES, RECOGNITION OF PROBLEMS OF TRANSFER STUDENTS, AND ENROLLMENT PRESSURES AT ALL LEVELS OF HIGHER EDUCATION. EFFECTIVE ARTICULATION REQUIRES WIDESPREAD KNOWLEDGE ABOUT TRANSFER STUDENTS, BASED UPON RESEARCH DATA. ALTHOUGH "TRANSFER SHOCK" OCCURS, JUNIOR COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE GENERALLY SUCCESSFUL AFTER TRANSFER TO SENIOR INSTITUTIONS. DEFINITION OF ROLES AND CHARACTERISTICS OF INSTITUTIONS WILL HELP STUDENTS TO CHOOSE APPROPRIATELY. ALTHOUGH THE 2-YEAR AND 4-YEAR COLLEGES AND THE UNIVERSITIES HAVE CERTAIN OVERLAPPING FUNCTIONS, ROLES CAN BE CLEARLY DELINEATED. CHANGES IN COURSE CONTENT NECESSITATE CAREFUL ARTICULATION IN INSURE CONTINUITY OF PROGRAM. INSTRUCTIONAL PERSONNEL QUALIFIED FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE TEACHING MUST BE PREPARED IN SENIOR INSTITUTIONS, WHICH MUST CAREFULLY EXAMINE THEIR PROGRAMS IN TERMS OF PERSONNEL SUPPLY AND DEMAND IN JUNIOR COLLEGES. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "SCHOOL AND SOCIETY," VOLUME 94, NUMBER 2277, APRIL 16, 1966. (WO)
