Transfer Liaison Webinar (April 20, 2018)

Dear MiTransfer Pathways Transfer Liaisons:  

Thank you for agreeing to join us at the first Transfer Pathways Summit on Friday, May 18, 2018 at Lansing Community College-West Campus.  We are looking forward to utilizing your expertise on transfer policies and procedures as we convene faculty from across the state to develop multi-institutional statewide associate to bachelor’s degree transfer pathways in four disciplines. Please review the following materials before the MiTransfer Pathways Summit on Friday, May 18, 2018 to maximize your engagement during the Summit.


First, please click here to register for the Summit.


Second, please plan to bring the following with you to the May 18 event:


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


  1. Transfer policy artifacts that will help you comprehensively consider administrative and procedural aspects of transfer that may affect the development of multi-institutional statewide articulation agreements. You may wish to bring printed copies or have these easy to access digitally during planned work sessions.


Third, plan to 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 biological sciences, business, criminal justice, and psychology. Attached is a list of institutional representatives designated to participate in the first MiTransfer Pathways Summit this spring. While not required, it is strongly recommended that institutional teams plan to meet on campus prior to their participation in the May 18 Summit in order to get to know one another, review assembled institutional artifacts, and hold a preliminary priorities discussion to maximize the institution’s involvement in this project. As the transfer liaison, we encourage you to take the initiative in reaching out to your faculty participants.
