Community College Review released a special issue on transfer students to highlight new research on a key function of the community college sector during a time of enhanced focus on student outcomes. The issue was co-edited by Matt Giani, educational leadership and policy Ph.D. and research scientist for the Texas OnCourse project at the Office of Strategy and Policy at The University of Texas at Austin.
The idea for the special issue occurred during a meeting of transfer scholars at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in Washington, D.C., in 2016. “The special issue offers new research on key themes to support successful transfer: transfer access, transfer pathways, and transfer policy,” said Giani.
The special issue will be available without a subscription through October 31, 2017.
