Transfer: Preparing for the Year 2000. A Report on the California Community Colleges Transfer Symposium (California, 1994).
California Community Colleges, Sacramento. Office of the Chancellor.
In April 1994, a Transfer Symposium was held by the California Community Colleges to bring educational analysts and policymakers together to discuss trends and issues affecting the transfer process and other aspects of educational access. This report presents transcripts from the two panel presentations and minutes from the three discussion sessions that comprised the Symposium. The first panel presentation, "The Role of Community Colleges in California Higher Education: Looking Forward," discusses the issue of access in the face of spiraling costs and declining enrollments, and the urgency of finding new solutions for access problems. The second panel presentation, "Community College Overview: Roles and Responsibilities in the Transfer Process," examines student access in the community college transfer process and what colleges are and are not doing to promote transfer. Next, minutes from the first discussion session, "Student Equity and Diversity in the Transfer Process," focus on recent efforts to achieve equity for students from diverse backgrounds. Minutes from the second discussion session, "What Is the Evolving Role of the System in Ensuring Academic Success," review planning issues related to demographics, technology, funding, and the complexities of the transfer process and college mission. The final discussion, "Ask the Universities: How Can We Work Together," explores cooperative possibilities to increase effectiveness in the areas of access and instruction. Recommendations are included for each discussion session. (KP)
