Helping students transfer from a two-year to a four-year institution

The process of transferring from a two-year institution to a four-year institution can be complicated and overwhelming for many students. Jason Taylor, professor of educational leadership and policy at the University of Utah, focuses his research on institutional level factors that hinder and promote transfer students’ completion of bachelor’s degrees. He’s available to speak about “transfer shock,” a term that refers to the decline in grade point average that many community college students experience after matriculating to four-year institutions, reverse transfer, which provides students an associate’s degree after they’ve transferred to a university, innovative transfer practices and how his research hopes to improve policies and practices at the state and institutional level.
