Event description


Research shows that 80 percent of students who enroll in one of our nation’s community colleges every year express an intent to complete a bachelor’s degree at a four-year institution. But, only 25 percent make the leap to a four-year school within five years, and only 17 percent complete a four-year degree within 6 years of transferring.

Over the past year, the Education Design Lab, with support from the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, partnered with four pairs of two- and four- year institutions (and one high school) to address this disparity through the Seamless Transfer Pathways Design Challenge. Together, we reevaluated their services and pathways through the lens of transfer students and designed new approaches to seamless transfers.

During Insights to Action, we’ll take a deep dive into the Education Design Lab’s Seamless Transfer Pathways Design Challenge. Learn about new approaches to transfer pathway design and institutional change management from four transfer partnerships. They will share their experiences designing new models for underserved learners and offer practical guidance to help you take action on your campus.
