In recent years, a convergence of several forces--increasedlegislative involvement in higher education, governmental andphilanthropic pressure to increase postsecondary degree andcertificate production, and fiscal belt-tightening at colleges anduniversities across America--has resulted in efforts tosignificantly reform community college-to-university transfer andarticulation processes.
One increasingly popular method of reform is the implementation oftransfer associate degrees: statewide pathways or degree programsthat allow students to both earn an associate degree from acommunity college and transfer seamlessly into a state universitywith junior status. This volume of New Directions for CommunityColleges outlines the elements of effective transfer associatedegrees and explores their implementation in six states.
This is the 160th volume of this Jossey-Bass quarterly reportseries. Essential to the professional libraries of presidents, vicepresidents, deans, and other leaders in today's open-doorinstitutions, New Directions for Community Collegesprovides expert guidance in meeting the challenges of theirdistinctive and expanding educational mission.
