Highlighting the Transfer, Honors, and Excellence Workshop. CSCC Bulletin, Issue 7, 1983.
Center for the Study of Community Colleges, Los Angeles, CA.
Summaries are provided for the major presentations given at a workshop on honors, transfer, and excellence, held in Los Angeles in October 1982. Following a brief overview of the main topics covered, highlights are presented from the talks of: (1) Robert McCabe, president of Miami-Dade Community College (MDCC), who urged participants to set high expectations of students in order to achieve the objectives of access and excellence and reviewed MDCC's efforts to tighten academic standards, increase college involvement, and stress generic skills to prepare students for work; (2) John Maguire, president of the Claremont University Center and Graduate School, who discussed the need to strengthen articulation agreements between community colleges and four-year colleges through better information, communication, counseling, and attitudes; and (3) a panel of leaders from six community college districts who discussed transfer and honors programs in the MDCC District, the City Colleges of Chicago, the Dallas Community College District, the St. Louis Community College District, the Maricopa Community College District, and the Los Angeles Community College District. Summaries are then presented of discussions dealing with the importance of publicizing excellence in community college transfer programs, faculty issues, and statewide articulation agreements. Concluding remarks by Arthur Cohen and Florence Brawer synthesize the major workshop themes. (LL)
