Report 90-30: Transfer and Articulation in the 1990s: California in the Larger Picture
Published by The California Postsecondary Education CommissionDecember 1990View Full Publication
The viability of the community college transfer function is being challenged once again in many states and nationally --particularly in regard to its effectiveness in providing access to the baccalaureate degree for historically underrepresented groups in higher education that are most likely to enroll in urban community colleges. This report attempts to put California's current efforts to find solutions to its problems of transfer and articulation in the broader context of national concerns. Following a brief summary and overview, Part One sets forth a series of conclusions and six recommendations for action by the University of California, the California State University, the California Community Colleges, and the Commission itself. Part Two describes recent developments in seven states--Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Texas, and Washington--that are attempting to improve transfer and articulation processes. Part Three summarizes research and writing about transfer from a national perspective. Parts Four and Five deal with specially funded efforts to improve transfer and articulation--Part four describing federal and foundation funding, and Part Five discussing various activities and programs that are being undertaken in California itself. Three appendices describe the transfer efforts of the University of California and the California State University and list grants to research projects from the Organization of the State Higher Education Executive Officers. The Commission adopted this report at its meeting of December 10,1990, on recommendation of its Policy Evaluation Committee.
