The Ford Transfer Opportunities Project at LaGuardia: Report on Activities.
La Guardia Community Coll., Long Island City, NY.
In September 1983, LaGuardia Community College (LCC) received a grant from the Ford Foundation's Urban Community Colleges Transfer Opportunities Program. By May 31, 1984, the following achievements had been made: (1) a model for providing students with basic transfer information was developed and tested; (2) the corporate community was brought into the project; (3) the option of transfer to a selective, private, residential college was developed as a model for arrangements with other types of four-year institutions; (4) qualitative and baseline data on transfer were collected to measure the impact of the project; (5) diverse perspectives and wide participation were ensured throughout the project; (6) the structure for transfer counseling was strengthened; (7) articulation efforts with four-year colleges were increased; and (8) the framework for a comprehensive, college-wide transfer system was created. As of May 1984, most of the objectives of the project had been institutionalized. The bulk of the report consists of appendices which provide observations on LCC's transfer project; profiles of graduates' transfer experiences; a student workbook for a cooperative education internship seminar, covering resume writing, conducting research on careers, the exploratory interview, personal expenses, and career planning; and a sample interview schedule.
