Dear Mechanical Engineering Faculty,


Thank you for agreeing to join us at the first MiTransfer Pathways Phase II Summit on Friday, November 2, 2018 at Jackson College-Maher Campus (3000 Blake Road, Jackson, MI).  We are looking forward to bringing together faculty from across the state to develop a multi-institutional statewide associate to bachelor’s degree transfer pathway in Mechanical Engineering. Please review the following materials before the MiTransfer Pathways Summit to maximize your engagement during the program.


First, please click here to RSVP for the Summit.


Second, please plan to bring the following with you to the November 2 event:


  1. A laptop computer, digital tablet, or smart phone device to access electronic resources as-needed.


  1. Department/program information to help facilitate cross-institution sharing including:

    • Course catalogs

    • Program guides

    • Course syllabi

    • Current transfer guides and articulation agreements


Third, connect with your MiTransfer Pathways institutional team. Institutions can send a team of up to 5 representatives, including a transfer liaison and faculty designees for communication, computer science, mechanical engineering, social work. While not required, we have recommended that your transfer liaison reach out to convene your institutions’ team for a meeting on campus prior to the November 2 Summit in order to get to know one another, review assembled institutional artifacts, and hold a preliminary institutional priorities discussion to maximize the institution’s involvement in this project.


Fourth, review the following materials:


Fifth, review examples from peer states.  States across the country are doing similar statewide transfer pathways work.   An example of a completed multi-institutional agreement in Mechanical Engineering:
