Tue 15 Oct, 2019, 10:00–10:50
Presentation Description. Please provide a brief description of your session. This description will be used to describe your session in the conference program.
Adult learners are continuously looking for flexible, convenient programs to further both their education and careers. In this session, participants will learn how to create successful and unique partnerships between community colleges and 4-year colleges or universities with the adult learner in mind. The type of partnerships that we will be discussing offer bachelor degree coursework on the community college campus. We will discuss ways to identify viable bachelor degree programs to offer, the research needed to identify sustainable community colleges to partner with, and the steps to creating a collaborative partnership. Participants will gain insight on both the successes and challenges our institution has faced. This session will not only be beneficial to the 4-year colleges and universities, but to the community colleges looking to offer alternative transfer opportunities. You will leave with ideas and examples on how to create dynamic partnerships on your campus!
