Ramping Up for STEM Success: Pathways for STEM Student Transfer
Successful transfer of more students from 2-year colleges to 4-year institutions is critical to the future of our workforce and our civic democratic life. In this project, AAC&U and PKAL planned and executed two national convenings dedicated to STEM transfer student success. The meetings were organized as Action Labs for selected community college/four-year institution partnerships from six states. Partners focused on developing effective models for STEM student transfer success. The project experimented in designing holistic models that go beyond coursework articulation agreements and build programmatic alignment and community.
To elucidate from invited campus representatives the key features of replicable and scalable models for STEM student success, emphasizing general education and entry into STEM baccalaureate programs. Information on these models will be disseminated online and in project reports.
