Transfer

This research is focused on understanding the role university educational deserts (UED) (areas with limited higher education options) have on transfer and the demographics of the students who live in these areas. This study will include a mapping of the California landscape where UEDs exist, followed by a robust quantitative analysis to explore the relationships between students’ distance to broad-access universities and their likelihood of transfer with special attention paid to the roles of race/ethnicity and income status.


Most comprehensive study of community college to four-year transfers in California of its time — resulting in increased understanding of the full spectrum of factors, interventions, strategies, and practices that have a positive impact on transfer.
