Los Angeles Mission College Year-End Narrative Report. Ford Foundation Urban Community College Transfer Opportunities Program.
Fonseca, Horacio R.
This report presents an assessment of the activities conducted at the Los Angeles Mission College under a Ford Foundation Urban Community College Transfer Opportunities Program grant. First, the program achievements are presented including the identification of 86 students who declared an interest in transferring to a four-year institution; the development of methods to identify potential transfer students; the identification of 12 alumni to work with student participants; and the recruitment of 12 faculty mentors. Next, the achievements under the grant are compared with the original proposal in the areas of potential students identified; and the number transferring to four-year institutions. This section also includes information on student ethnicity, units completed, and grade point averages; and includes additional information on the faculty mentor program and the project director. Then, the report highlights program changes including hiring new staff; broadening the responsibilities of alumni tutors; limiting campus visits; eliminating quest speakers; downplaying visits to the Career/Transfer Center and use of the "Eureka" computer; and delaying the planning of a "Career and Transfer Information Guide." Finally, plans for institutionalizing the transfer program are provided and ways of broadening the program are outlined, including centralizing counseling services; increased emphasis on the role of the Transfer Program Office and the Director; and the expansion of financial aid workshops. Appendices include student participation agreements and data on student applications and transfers. (HB)
