Hughes, Teresa P.
This report presents the testimony and materials presented at the California Senate Select Committee on Higher Education Admissions and Outreach hearing, held on December 3, 1997. The main purpose of the hearing was to provide public awareness and information on the articulation and transfer rate of community college students. Witnesses at the hearing made a number of recommendations and insights regarding the community colleges and the services they provide to students. The publication provides a letter of transmittal, a list of witnesses, and the transcript of the testimony. Senator Teresa Hughes, who was also the chairperson presiding over the testimony, gave the opening statement. Charles Ratliff, Executive Director of California Postsecondary Education Commission, provides a historical overview of California's transfer students and programs. Dr. Alice Petrossian, Christopher Cabaldon, and Kathleen Nelson addressed the role of the student transfer. Making the transition happen is an issue addressed by several students -- Sandi Sawa, Caroline Walls, and Anthony Cannizzo -- who spoke of their own personal experiences at the community college. Four college and university administrators conducted a panel on enhancing student transfer. Senator Hughes ended the testimony with some closing remarks. (VWC)
