The Intersegmental Conference: A Focus on the Community College Transfer Student; Report (Irvine, California, October 27, 1983).
California Univ., Irvine.; Los Angeles Community Coll. District, CA.
In October 1983, representatives from six University of California (UC) campuses, six California State University (CSU) campuses, and community colleges in the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) and Orange County participated in a conference held to explore and develop ways to enhance postsecondary cooperation in order to increase the number of students who transfer from community colleges to four-year institutions. This report presents highlights of that conference. First, an executive summary provides background to the conference and the issues it addressed, and presents recommendations for improving the prospects of successful transfer through counseling/outreach services, faculty involvement, support services and follow-up, administrative coordination, and staff development. The following sections discuss intersegmental coordination, provide information on conference participants and the agenda, offer perspectives on the transfer function, and describe the LACCD's Project ACCESS (Action for Community College Enhancement of Student Success). Then, detailed accounts are provided of group discussions on issues in instruction, outreach/counseling services, special programs, admissions processes, and financial resources. The report concludes with a list of topics for future consideration. Appendices include a summary of the recommendations of the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund for enhancing the successful transfer of Mexican-American community college students; a description of an urban community college transfer program; and a sample cooperative agreement between a CSU campus and an LACCD college.
