Los Angeles City College Urban Transfer Opportunities Program: Narrative Report.
Sotiriou, Peter E.; Ireland, Jackie
The goal of the Los Angeles City College (LACC) Urban Transfer Opportunity Program (UTOP) is to increase the opportunity of low income minority students to transfer from LACC to four-year institutions. To achieve this goal, the college initiated an instructional delivery system that integrates academic courses, skills courses, and counseling services. The system teams up instructors, one representing an academic discipline and one representing a skills discipline, in curriculum development and instructional delivery. In addition, the instructors are teamed with a counselor in student assessment, guidance, and evaluation. This coordinated approach enables the college to understand and address the totality of a student's needs. The project report discusses the results of the delivery system in terms of its achievements to date; the relationship of the program's achievements to its original objectives; changes made in program, resource allocation and staff from the original project proposal; and plans for the institutionalization of the delivery system. Appendices provide samples of materials developed for the UTOP students. (AYC)
