The Intersegmental Major Preparation Articulated Curriculum (IMPAC) is a faculty-designed, faculty-run project designed to assist the student transfer process from the California Community Colleges (CCC) to the University of California (UC) and the California State University (CSU) systems. In June, 2000, the Chancellor of the California Community College System awarded the first of five $550,000 annual grants to fund the work of IMPAC. The goals of the IMPAC project include: (1) reaching intersegmental consensus on the required elements to be included in the lower division preparation for the major; (2) working with other intersegmental transfer efforts; (3) increasing transferability of students between campuses and between the three higher education systems; and (4) decreasing the time to degree for students. IMPAC has grouped the range of available transfer majors into five clusters of disciplines: (1) Sciences; (2) Applied Sciences; (3) Business and Government; (4) Social and Behavioral, and Language; and (5) Arts and Humanities. This report includes annual reports from Science Cluster 1, which includes the following disciplines: Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics; and Science Cluster 2, which includes Agriculture, Computer Science, Earth Sciences, Food Science and Nutrition, and Nursing.
