Illuminating Transfer: Connecting Community Colleges and Universities 

for Degree Attainment

Many new majority students begin at community colleges. Both community colleges and universities are responsible for creating clear pathways for degree completion; Associate AND Bachelor degrees. 

Because of COVID-19, we regret to announce the postponement of the 2020 Summer Institute originally scheduled for June 29. We encourage you to continue working on community college/university partnerships. These alliances have never been more important. Please let us know if Governors State University can be helpful in these efforts. We will keep you posted on further plans.

Please learn from each other by working together on building and strengthening pathways for students that result in degrees from two institutions: the community college and the university

 Please consult information on Governors State University’s award-winning Dual Degree Program (DDP)DDP-Male Success Initiative (MSI), and Center for the Junior Year (CJY). We would like to hear your stories about successes and challenges. 

We appreciate the support of The Kresge Foundation and a Title III grant under the U.S. Department of Education’s Strengthening Institutions Program.
