Policies and Practices to Advance a Next-Generation Transfer System

November 16, 2020  • College Excellence Program

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased student mobility and attention to transfer students, and increased urgency for institutions, systems, and states to accelerate the development of stronger and better-aligned transfer pathways. Two new briefs—produced by the Aspen Institute in collaboration with HCM Strategists, Bruce Vandal LLC, and transfer researchers Shanna Smith Jaggars and Marcos Rivera—offer specific policy and practice recommendations that can be implemented today to improve outcomes for transfer students, both in the short term and as part of a strategy to address structural barriers to transfer success and equity.
