Commission Comments on the Intersegmental Task Force Report. Facilitating the Transfer of Community College EOPS Students to California's Public Universities. Commission Report 85-25.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
Reactions of the California Postsecondary Education Commission to task force recommendations about the Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) are presented. EOPS provides services and financial aid to community college students who transfer to public four-year colleges. The task force concluded that existing comprehensive opportunity programs at all three public segments for low-income or otherwise disadvantaged students have given only limited priority to transfer students. While the Commission generally agrees with the task force recommendations, it believes that more fundamental improvements in the working relationships of existing programs are needed to increase the number of EOPS students who transfer to public universities and complete their baccalaureate programs. Two alternative strategies to assure a consistent continuum of services are identified: consolidating the existing state-funded programs into a single program; or further revising existing programs to make them more responsive to low-income and educationally disadvantaged students who begin their baccalaureate education in a community college. Specific recommendations for the California State University Educational Opportunity Program and the Community College EOPS program are included. (SW)
