This report presents information on activities conducted at Highland Park Community College (HPCC) under a Ford Foundation Urban Community College Transfer Opportunities Program grant. Introductory material outlines some impacts of the grant program in terms of increased recruitment of HPCC students and the signing of articulation agreements. It also presents the three major objectives of the program: the identification of potential transfer students and development of a student data base system; the upgrading of counseling and instructional services in an effort to improve student achievement levels and to facilitate transfer; and the recruitment of potential transfer students from local high schools. Next, the activities undertaken to achieve these objectives are presented, including: (1) initiating a student assessment program; (2) designing and implementing activities with four-year "receiver" colleges and "feeder" high schools; (3) expanding the existing honors program; (4) establishing a program that uses work-study and cooperative education experiences to strengthen academic skills; (5) upgrading counseling and instructional services; and (6) enriching recruitment efforts directed to transfer students. Appendices include letters, advisement sheets, a performance report, and a migration transfer study report. (HB)
