First Annual Report of the Urban Community College Transfer Opportunities Program.
In 1984, LaGuardia Community College (LCC) received a 3-year implementation award from the Ford Foundation to increase the number of minority, low-income students who transfer to and succeed in baccalaureate programs. This report describes the 1984-85 accomplishments of LCC under the Urban Community College Transfer Opportunities Program (UCCTOP). Following an overview of the project and specific activities, the report describes LCC's efforts to strengthen external linkages with public and private universities and colleges in New York and with secondary schools. The next section describes UCCTOP's student support services, including a two-session transfer workshop, the Transfer Fair, and the Career and Transfer Resource Center. Next, a discussion is presented of LCC's transfer decision-making curriculum, which includes the cooperative education seminar, "Life, Education and Career Planning." Following a review of the involvement of LCC's faculty in curriculum reform, the report describes the development of an automated Degree Requirement Checklist that helps students manage progress toward the completion of their degrees. The next section focuses on the development of a research design to document the number, identity, and characteristics of potential transfer students; as well as to monitor student progress through the program and after transfer. Finally, the report discusses the program's budget. Appendices provide a Model for Two-Year and Four-Year Articulation Handbook, an agenda for a transfer workshop, and a list of questions for potential transfer students to ask college representatives.
