Articulation with Four-Year Colleges.
Farland, Ronnald; Anderson, Connie
Recent articulation activities between the California community colleges and four-year colleges are summarized, and recommendations for a 1988-89 plan of action for continued improvement are presented. Part I discusses progress made by the Office of the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges in implementing a 1986-87 articulation action plan. Brief descriptive summaries are provided of regional conferences for articulation officers, joint projects with the California State University (CSU), development of a general education transfer curriculum, efforts to implement the California Articulation Number (CAN) Project (an intersegmentally funded, statewide, cross-referenced number system designed to assist students in determining what community college classes can be taken to fulfill course requirements at four-year colleges), 2+2+2 projects (articulated programs of study which include 2 years of high school study, 2 years of community college work, and 2 years at a four-year college), and the formation of the Intersegmental Coordinating Council's Committee on Transfer and Articulation. Part II looks at other statewide activities, including new CSU transfer admission requirements and Project ASSIST, an on-line microcomputer-supported course planning system). Part III presents recommendations for the local community college districts and the Chancellor's Office. Recommendations from the regional articulation conferences and a detailed discussion of the role and responsibilities of an articulation officer are appended. (EJV)
