General Education and Student Transfer: Fostering Intentionality and Coherence in State Systems

Supported by AAC&U's Greater Expectations for Student Transfer project, this publication examines the challenge of clearly defining and communicating educational purposes at a time when most undergraduates attend multiple institutions.

Included are essays by Robert Shoenberg and Martin Finkelstein as well as reports from state systems in Utah, Georgia, and Maryland.
