California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This report puts California's current efforts to find solutions to its problems of transfer and articulation in the broader context of national concerns. Following a brief summary and overview, part 1 sets forth a seris of conclusions and six recommendations for action by the University of California, the California State University, the California Community Colleges, and the Commission itself. Part Two describes recent developments in seven states--Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Texas, and Washington--that are attempting to improve transfer and articulation processes. Part 3 summarizes research and writing about transfer from a national perspective. Parts 4 and 5 deal with specially funded efforts to improve transfer and articulation, part 4 describing federal and foundation funding, and part 5 discussing various activities and programs that are being undertaken in California itself. Three appendices describe the transfer efforts of the University of California and the California State University and list grants to research projects from the Organization of the State Higher Education Executive Officers. Includes 54 references. (Author)
