The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) in partnership with the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the Association on Public and Land-Grant Institutions (APLU) is launching the Equity Transfer Initiative (ETI). The ETI aims to increase transfer rates for African American, Hispanic, adult, and first-generation learners.
AACC, AASCU and APLU member institutions are eligible to apply for participation in the ETI. Teams and/or consortium will work together to expand existing and/or develop new transfer pathways in at least 5 high demand occupations. Participating institutions will receive support from transfer coaches and technical assistance from subject matter experts to implement the work required to expand and/or establish pathways. As a part of the ETI work, teams and/or consortiums will implement evidence-based or new equity strategies that improve student success for the students being served through the ETI. ETI transfer pathways will be structured to ensure student completion of the associate’s degree before transfer to the 4-year partner institution(s).
The proposal deadline has been extended to December 9, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. ET.
