ARTICULATION IS AN OPPORTUNITY.
KINTZER, FREDERICK C.
THE RIGHT TO ESTABLISH STANDARDS FOR THE BACHELOR'S DEGREE IN CALIFORNIA HAS LONG BEEN THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE SENIOR INSTITUTIONS. ALTHOUGH THEY HAVE A HIGH REGARD FOR THE WORK OF THE JUNIOR COLLEGE, THEY FEAR THAT COURSE CONTENT MAY DIMINISH BECAUSE OF THE GREAT DEMANDS ON THE JUNIOR INSTITUTIONS. THEY HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THE UNIVERSITY-WIDE OFFICE OF RELATIONS WITH SCHOOLS, WHICH SUBMITS PROPOSED COURSES TO THE UNIVERSITY'S DIRECTOR OF ADMISSIONS TO DECIDE IF THEY ARE UNIVERSITY-EQUIVALENT OR OTHERWISE APPROPRIATE FOR A DEGREE. THIS PROCESS, WHILE SLOW, DOES WORK AND TRANSFER PROBLEMS HAVE NOT BEEN GREAT. UNDER THE TRIPARTITE SYSTEM OF HIGHER EDUCATION, HOWEVER, THE JUNIOR COLLEGE FEELS IT SHOULD HAVE MORE VOICE, ESPECIALLY INSOFAR AS THE PRESENT SYSTEM CURTAILS INNOVATION AND EXPERIMENT. THE ARTICULATION CONFERENCE INFORMALLY OVERSEES THE TRANSFER PROCESS AND, ALTHOUGH IT WORKS WELL, THE DECISION HAS STILL NOT BEEN LEFT TO THE JUNIOR COLLEGE. THIS AREA OF TENSION APPEARS TO BE LESSENING THROUGH INCREASED CONFERENCE AND COMMUNICATION. ARTICULATION IN CERTAIN SUBJECT FIELDS AND SEVERAL AGREEMENTS BETWEEN THE UNIVERSITY AND THE JUNIOR COLLEGE HAVE BEEN WORKED OUT IN THIS MANNER, WITH MORE APPROACHING CONCLUSION. IT IS FELT THAT MORE UNIVERSAL AGREEMENTS IN GENERAL EDUCATION TRANSFERS CAN NOW BE DEVELOPED. THIS ARTICLE IS A REPRINT FROM THE "JUNIOR COLLEGE JOURNAL,"VOLUME 37, NUMBER 7, APRIL 1967. (HH)
