Transfer Enhancement Plan. A Report Prepared by the Transfer Task Force.
City Coll. of San Francisco, CA.
This Transfer Enhancement Plan was prepared by the Transfer Task Force from the City College of San Francisco (CCSF). The purpose of the plan is to improve the transfer success of all CCSF students. This report reviews current transfer structure, efforts, activities, and programs, and identifies successful transfer efforts that should be supported or expanded, as well as issues that must be addressed. Such issues include the low rates of transfer among underrepresented groups such as African American and Hispanic students, and financial barriers to transfer due to low socio-economic status. External factors, such as enforcing Math and English transfer requirements and the rollback of affirmative action, may also hinder transfer efforts. The Transfer Enhancement Plan is divided into four major areas that explore and enhance CCSF's transfer function: (1) college leadership, (2) academic programs, (3) retention/student support services, and (4) access and outreach. In each of the areas, the goals to be accomplished are highlighted, and strategies and action plans necessary to accomplish each goal are included. A grid delineates associated time frames, resources, and college units responsible for each activity. A glossary of terms is provided. Appendices include recommendations from the 1994 transfer symposium, SCANS Competencies, and CCSF student support services and programs. (YKH)
