ECMC Foundation Awards Vassar Funding for Exploring Transfer Together Initiative
The goals of this exciting new grant are to study the effect of Vassar’s long-standing Exploring Transfer (ET) program on community college students' subsequent completion of four-year degrees, improve the ET program as needed, and work with other liberal arts colleges to catalyze ET-like programs that promote community college student transfer to four-year colleges.
