Grant Summary

$250,000 over 39 months to involve nine independent colleges in developing two statewide transfer pathways in biology and psychology. In the Washington state context, program-specific transfer pathways are known as Major Related Programs (MRPs). The program-specific curricula are designed on top of a statewide transferrable general education core and ensure community college students have junior status in their majors. Washington currently has seven MRPs and virtually all of them are professionally oriented in nature (e.g., business, nursing, construction). This project is co-funded by the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations.
