CCBC at the 2008 IHEP Summer Academy The 2008 IHEP (Institute for Higher Education and Policy) Summer Academy was held July 2008 in Birmingham, Alabama. CCBC sent two members of the Articulation Team, Nicole Zairi (Team Leader) and Tim Thompson (SOLA Team Representative), to work with national consultants and transfer leaders in the USA to improve articulation and transfer opportunities for CCBC students. Nicole and Tim were invited presenters at the 2008 Summer Academy. Their presentation, “Building Institutional Collaborations to Support Today’s Mobile Student Though Team Work”, was well received and followed by a question‐ and‐answer dialogue with Kate Dillon Hogan as the mediator. Questions centered on servicing military, high school, part‐ time, and commuter students, and other populations that deserve more transfer and articulation research and support. Joined by other Maryland IHEP members, Dr. Cosmas Nwokeafor from Bowie State University and Secretary James E. Lyons from MHEC, the CCBC team got down to business during the Institute researching and drafting their 2008 Summer Academy Project. The Project, entitled “2+2+2 Agreements”, focused on articulating Transcripted Graded non‐traditional credits to community colleges and then on to Bachelor’s degree granting institutions. The CCBC team came away from the event with completed first drafts of Tech Prep and CEED to Credit Articulation Secretary James E. Lyons, Sr., Maryland Higher Education Commission Procedures. The team will share the draft procedures with the (Middle). campus community, and hopefully implement them for the Dr. Cosmas Uche Nwokeafor, Assistant to the Provost for Graduate Studies, Bowie State University (Left in Top, Right in Bottom Picture) 2008‐2009 school year. Next year’s IHEP project has yet to be Dr. Tim Thompson, Associate Professor and Chair of the Communications determined, but the proposals of ‘Support for Active and Arts Department, CCBC (Left in Bottom Picture) Retired Military and Part‐Time Populations’ were suggested. Nicole Zairi, Articulation Team Leader and Articulation Assistant for The Office of Instruction, CCBC (Right in Top Picture) CCBC would like to thank IHEP consultants Kathleen Nelson, Higher Education Consultant from Smithfield Consulting Group, and Kate Dillon Hogan, Vice President for State Compliance, Grand Canyon University, for their support and assistance on the CCBC project. A special thanks goes out to Clifford Adelman, Senior Associate of IHEP, whose presentation on the growing and under‐represented “Mobile Student Population” was inspirational and reflective of the work CCBC has put into supporting its transfer population.
