Progress Report on Arizona Public Postsecondary Education: Jointly Identifying and Meeting the State's Postsecondary Needs, Articulating Postsecondary Courses and Academic Programs.
Arizona State Board of Directors for Community Colleges, Phoenix.; Arizona Board of Regents, Phoenix.
This progress report addresses the articulation of courses and academic programs and the postsecondary education needs of Arizona citizens. In recent years, the Arizona Board of Regents and the State Board of Directors for Community Colleges of Arizona have reported to the Legislature on progress in implementing a new statewide transfer model and on a collaborative process to identify and meet statewide postsecondary needs. The implementation of the New Transfer Model included new transfer degrees, new general education requirements, new common requirements for equivalent majors, new limits on the amount of work that can be transferred from a community college into a baccalaureate program, and the concept of transfer blocks, all resulting in new pathways for transfer students. To improve access to baccalaureate education, Arizona public universities have initiated new Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degrees, and Arizona's public community colleges formed partnerships with Arizona's public and private universities, and with out-of-state universities. In 1998, the statewide Higher Education Study Committee established a Joint Review Committee, a group of community college and university representatives charged to resolve issues that might arise in identifying and meeting demonstrated statewide needs for post-secondary education.
