Views from the Field on Community College Transfer: Testimony to the Ad Hoc Committee on Community College Transfer of the California Postsecondary Education Commission.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This report contains the testimony of administrators, faculty, representatives of different sectors of higher education in California, and other interested individuals as presented to the Ad Hoc Committee on Community College Transfer of the California Postsecondary Education Commission. First, prefatory material provides information on the Committee hearings and summarizes some of the themes that emerged from the testimony, including: (1) transfer from two-year to four-year colleges is just one part of the articulation process; (2) articulation should begin with the lower grades and continue through to the graduate level; (3) transfer rates cannot be computed without knowing what the pool of transfer students is; (4) community colleges are pivotal to any successful educational reform program; (5) transfer education cannot be done cheaply; and (6) transfer problems cannot be solved by any one segment of education or by any group of people acting alone. Next, testimony is provided from five chief executive officers; other program and college administrators; representatives from faculty groups; an attorney from the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund; and representatives from the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities and each segment of public postsecondary education in California. Appendices provide descriptions of Ford Foundation Urban Community College Transfer Projects in California and a position paper on transfer education. (HB)
