Putting It All Together: A Minority Transition Program.
Sacramento City Coll., CA.
Sacramento City College (SCC) created a transfer opportunity program to implement joint activities with four-year colleges and high schools, establish an academic skills program for potential minority transfers, improve telecommunications with local four-year institutions, expand its existing junior high school program. and continue its formalized articulation project with the Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD). The objectives of the program were to: (1) identify 100 "non-traditional" students with transfer potential; (2) assess the students' academic ability; (3) develop individual plans to define, implement, and refine the students' educational goals; (4) provide in-depth counseling, support, and information to facilitate the transfer process; and (5) evaluate the transfer success of these students as compared to a matched group that did not participate in the program. This project report describes the activities undertaken by SCC to achieve the project goals; looks at ways the project differed from the original proposal; and highlights additional activities, such as SCC's junior high school program through which students visit the campus. Appendices provide an evaluation instrument used to solicit reactions from program participants, evaluation findings, and a year-end report from the SCUSD/SCC Articulation Council. (EJV)
