A New Position in Higher Education: Liaison Officer for Articulation.
In December 1973, the Arlie House Conference on College Transfers recommended the establishment of an Articulation Counseling Office (ACO) at each institution offering the junior and senior years of college. The ACO acts as a liaison between junior and senior educational institutions in an effort to make the articulation process easier for the students involved. As of 1974, Florida was the only state to have an ACO in each of its nine public universities. This study reviews literature pertinent to college transfer and presents the characteristics, workloads, roles, responsibilities, information needs, and problems of ACO personnel in Florida. Recommendations designed to aid in establishing the roles and responsibilities for ACO's in other institutions of higher education are made. Appended tables include summaries of role and responsibility responses to a survey questionnaire and organizational charts for each of the nine public universities. (DC)
