Spotlight on the Transfer Function: A National Study of State Policies and Practices.
Bender, Louis W., Ed.
An examination is provided of state policies relating to transfer and articulation and of the transfer problems and issues reported by community, technical, and junior colleges and students in various states. First, an executive summary addresses such issues as misunderstandings about the transfer/articulation phenomenon, trends revealed in state policies, concerns that have prompted increased state attention to transfer, and recommendations emerging from the study. Part I includes "State Articulation Policies: Myths and Realities," by Louis W. Bender, which analyzes state-level policies, legislative mandates, executive orders, regulations, and studies of state boards or other regulatory bodies. "Articulation and State-Level Information Systems: A Necessary Marriage," by William R. Odom, provides an idealized model of state-level articulation information systems. Part II consists of case study reports of successful transfer and articulation at the institutional or regional level in California, Florida, New Jersey, and Texas. This section contains "New Jersey Institute of Technology and Transfer Relations," by Gary Thomas; "An Articulated Program between the University of Central Florida and Valencia Community College," by William Michael Hooks and Frank E. Juge; "The Articulation/Transfer Activities of the Los Rios Community College District," by Barbara L. Howard; "Addendum: Transfer Opportunity Program," by Phil DuBois and Barbara L. Howard; and "A Context for Transfer Policy in Texas Higher Education," by Gloria Ann Lopez and Dale Campbell. (JMC)
