September 7, 2007- I am looking forward to following up my CNCTYC Summer Academy presentation in Santa Fe with the CNCTYC group at the Traverse City, Michigan conference next week. ConnectEdu and CNCTYC (Council of North Central Two-Year Colleges) have kicked off a national discussion regarding the deployment of a new service model for Transfer Student Advisement including the provision of course articulation information to students.
As the community college environment focuses on strengthening transfer advisement programs and developing effective course equivalency systems, ConnectEdu is proud to be a comprehensive partner with community colleges in addressing these needs. Each year, there are 6 million community college students that indicate they desire to complete undergraduate, four-year degrees, yet only 750,000 students move onto four-year institutions. There is a clear opportunity to positively impact the college access discussion by providing transfer advisors with better service models, scalable guidance platforms, comprehensive transfer preparation resources and effective course equivalency solutions. We are certainly looking forward to moving the discussion into action with our CNCTYC Partners.
