Ascent: A Ford Foundation Urban Community College Transfer Opportunities Grant Project. Final Report.
Honolulu Community Coll., HI.
This report presents a review of activities conducted at Honolulu Community College under a grant from the Ford Foundation Urban Community College Transfer Opportunities Grant. First, project achievements are outlined, along with the ways in which these achievements correspond to the original grant proposal. They include: (1) the development of an orientation course, Transfer Decisions, to assist students in their transition from a two- to a four-year institution; (2) the piloting of a computer course, Introduction to College Computer Study Skills, designed to introduce the transfer student to the time-saving possibilities of using a microcomputer; (3) the development of a prototype transfer terminal with a database accessible by students, faculty, and student services staff; and (4) the development of the conceptual design for an automated student tracking system. The following section provides more detailed information on the four components. Next, a report on program modifications, the allocation of resources, and staffing is provided. Finally, the college's plans for institutionalizing each of the four major components and for regional and national dissemination are outlined. Background materials on the college and its programs and services, and additional project materials are appended. (HB)
