Oregon State System of Higher Education, Portland. Office of Academic Affairs.
This report outlines recent efforts and offers specific policy recommendations to improve transfer and articulation policies within the Oregon State university system. After taking note of the growing scope and complexity of transfer and articulation throughout the nation, and in Oregon in particular, it discusses the effects of distance education, outcomes-based education, performance indicators, individualized and accelerated academic programs, public accountability, and "customer" expectations on transfer and articulation policies. The report continues by outlining the guiding principles and strategic actions recommended by the Oregon State Board of Higher Education in regard to the following: co-admission and co-enrollment programs; articulation agreements; an additional block transfer degree; baccalaureate degree outcomes; course-equivalency information systems; discipline-based problem solving; professional/technical courses, the research agenda; institutional responsibilities; course sharing; early options programs; intrasystem transfer issues; and an intersector transfer plan. Recent efforts by Oregon's higher education institutions to improve transfer and articulation are summarized, along with other intersector and articulation activities. (MDM)
