Lateral and Vertical Student Mobility: An Essential for the Community College.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
Recommendations for maximizing lateral and vertical mobility for community college students with a minimum loss of credit are presented in terms of student services, academic policies and regulations, and implementation strategies. Student services suggestions include pre-counseling services for high school seniors, career counseling centers on campus, academic counseling, testing services, and exit counseling. Actions by state agencies which can help promote student mobility include monitoring community college practices in such areas as equal access and equal opportunity and organizing statewide workshops on student mobility. In the area of curriculum and instruction, suggestions are made for suspension and probation policies, provision of general education in career curricula, grading, articulation policies, modular instruction, and credit for experience and by examination. Two implementation procedures are presented, stressing a strong commitment to maximum student mobility within a sound educational framework and a program for faculty and staff development. Special suggestions for black students regarding career and educational aspirations, remediation, and testing are made, and a list of contributors and a short student goals inventory are appended.
