2022-2023 Education Committee
Disseminating Best Practices for Successful Community College Transfer. The Education Committee is charged with continuing its work to strengthen articulation between community colleges and professional and pre-professional architecture programs. Building upon the work of the 2021-2022 “Survey on Expanding Access to Architectural Education” and the identification of “transfer-friendly” practices, the committee will: (1) continue research and develop best practices for and identify barriers to achieving smooth transition to 4- and 5-year programs including, but not limited to appropriate general education and disciplinary coursework, portfolio requirements, and testing; (2) develop FAQs/guidance/maps for articulating pathways into 4- and 5- year programs from community colleges; and (3) formulate a plan for a convening of institutions and organizations (eg ACSA, CCCAP, NAAB) seeking to advance community college transfer to take place no later than fall 2023.
