In Spring 2007, the State Chancellor's Office of the California Community Colleges awarded the Transfer Leadership Center (TLC) study to investigate two-to-four year transfer practices and strategies. As part of the study's qualitative component, research teams from the Center for Student Success of the Research & Planning Group of the California Community Colleges conducted site visits to seven community colleges with higher-than-expected transfer rates. The site visits included extensive interviews and focus groups conducted with students, college counselors, faculty, administrators, classified staff, representatives from special programs, and high school counselors. This report presents findings from site visits to Los Angeles Southwest College (LASC). Appended are: (1) Los Angeles Southwest College Study Participants; (2) Documents Reviewed for Los Angeles Southwest College Case Study Analysis; (3) Los Angeles Southwest College Descriptors; (4) Los Angeles Southwest College Transfer Indicators; and (5) Los Angeles Southwest College's Agreements with Four-Year Colleges and Representative Visits.
