Report on Transfer Articulation Activities at Illinois Colleges and Universities.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
In December 1991, a survey was conducted of transfer coordinators at all public and private two- and four-year colleges and universities in Illinois to determine the current status of transfer articulation services and activities. Follow-up surveys and telephone contacts resulted in usable data from 12 public universities, 36 private colleges and universities, 49 public community colleges, and 5 private two-year colleges. Study findings included the following: (1) 9 public universities and 16 private colleges and universities provided community colleges with detailed course-to-course equivalency guides; (2) 35 community colleges had developed articulation handbooks, and 41 had developed program articulation guides for transfer students; (3) all 12 public universities and 5 private colleges and universities regularly sent feedback reports on the progress of transfer students to each community college; (4) 26 community colleges and 2 private two-year colleges reported conducting their own follow-up studies of transfer students; (5) public universities reported that an average of 1.6 full-time equivalent (FTE) staff were assigned to coordinate articulation, while community colleges averaged .77 FTE assigned to coordinate articulation; (6) 11 public universities and 9 private colleges and universities hosted or sponsored annual articulation conferences or other related articulation activities; and (7) 30 community colleges reported articulation agreements with public universities, while 14 reported agreements with private colleges and universities. Data tables and a review of significant statewide articulation activities are included. (PAA)
