Bronx Community College Urban Community College Transfer Opportunities Program: Ford Foundation Report.
In 1983, Bronx Community College initiated a project to increase the transfer possibilities of its students through activities focusing on increased retention and graduation rates, increased transfers to four-year colleges, and improved services to transfer students. The project's first objective, improving student information services, was met by the production of an electronic version of the student handbook and the installation of an on-line System for Interactive Guidance and Information. The second objective, redesigning and strengthening transfer advisement and liaison systems, was addressed through the activities of the newly created position of transfer officer. The third objective, strengthening the academic program, was met through block programming of students, adding faculty to the STARS (Strategies for Teaching And Reinforcing Skills) program, experimenting with computerized videotapes, and strengthening the English Department's writing program. All activities have been institutionalized. The bulk of the document consists of appended reports for each of the component activities. (EJV)
