Faculty-Determined Course Equivalency: The Key to Ohio's Transfer Mobility System
Compton, Paula K.; Tafel, Jonathan; Law, Joe; Gustafson, Robert
New Directions for Community Colleges, n160 p45-54 Win 2012
For more than two decades, the vision of a statewide system of student mobility has driven Ohio's articulation and transfer initiatives, which guarantee that specific courses will be applied to degrees and certificates at public two- and four-year postsecondary institutions. This chapter outlines how Ohio developed a comprehensive, guaranteed transfer system that connects colleges and universities, high schools, adult career centers, and the workplace. Ohio's story confirms the importance of clearly defined pathways, faculty-determined course equivalency, cutting-edge technology, and effective, determined leadership. Ohio's mobility system works because it puts students at the center of a faculty-driven process and gives them tools to navigate the postsecondary system to achieve their highest educational aspiration.
