In this session, faculty and student representatives from LaGuardia Community College, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and Queens College will discuss the facilitation and implementation of advising strategies and transfer opportunities for Writing and Literature students as they apply to four-year colleges at CUNY. Current and former LaGuardia students who have applied and/or transferred to a four-year CUNY college will discuss their experiences with the process, sharing challenges and suggestions for better communication and a smoother transition from one campus to the next. English department faculty from the three institutions will share the rationale behind creating articulation agreements between two- and four-year colleges as well as the systems in place to inform and advise students of these opportunities. The role of advisement, articulation agreements, departmental and cross-campus events, data collection and analysis, programmatic assessment, and the use of technology will also be highlighted.
