The Transfer Playbook: Essential Practices for Two- and Four-Year Colleges

Conference: Queens Collaborative Transfer Summit
Date and Time: June 16, 2016
Location: New York, NY
Venue: Queens College Campus | Student Union Ballroom

CCRC has partnered with the Aspen Institute and the National Student Clearinghouse to conduct research on community college–to–university transfer. ​John Fink of CCRC and KC Deane of Aspen presented results of two recent products from this research: (1) a January 2016 report on measures of the effectiveness of two- and four-year institutions in enabling students to transfer and earn bachelor’s degrees; and (2) a May 2016 report on the practices of partnerships of two- and four-year institutions that have better-than-expected bachelor’s outcomes for students who start at community colleges. The presenters shared​ findings with representatives from the four CUNY community and senior colleges in Queens and moderated a presidential panel on improving transfer.
