Transfer Education in American Community Colleges.
Cohen, Arthur M.; And Others
Stemming from the Ford Foundation's Urban Community Colleges Transfer Opportunities Program (UCCTOP), this report presents the results of efforts of the Center for the Study of Community Colleges to gather and analyze data on the 24 two-year colleges that received UCCTOP grants to advance transfer opportunities in urban, public community colleges. Chapter 1 discusses the state of transfer education in community colleges, particularly as it relates to the enrollment of minority students. Chapter 2 reviews the process of selecting the colleges that received UCCTOP grants. Chapter 3 profiles the UCCTOP colleges, giving particular attention to minority enrollment patterns. Chapter 4 covers the administrative organization and governance of the colleges, and the intersegmental articulation policies in the colleges' states. Chapter 5 offers data on faculty characteristics and attitudes regarding transfer education. In chapter 6, information on student characteristics, predisposition to transfer, characteristics that are predictive of transfer, and student satisfaction with the transfer function at the colleges is presented. Chapter 7 details the projects conducted by the colleges to enhance transfer opportunities for minority students. The last chapter offers recommendations concerning policy, organization, and program content, and considers the future of transfer education. (LAL)
