Selected by Phi Theta Kappa for 3rd Straight Year
Cleveland State University has been recognized for a third year in a row by Phi Theta Kappa as a member of its Excellence in Community College Transfer Honor Roll. The award identifies the top four-year colleges and universities for creating dynamic pathways to support community college transfer.
“CSU is extremely honored to receive this national recognition for our efforts to support transfer students,” says Lee Furbeck, CSU’s director of undergraduate admissions and student transition. “Our partnerships with multiple community colleges in the region allow for a smooth transition to Cleveland State, ensuring students have the tools necessary to succeed academically.”
“In order to ensure the continued success of community college graduates, the Transfer Honor Roll Program identifies colleges and universities that understand the unique needs of transfer students and applauds the dynamic pathways these colleges have created to continue fostering student success when these students move on to four-year colleges,” adds Phi Theta Kappa CEO Lynn Tincher-Ladner.
The Transfer Honor Roll seeks to recognize institutions that are innovatively responding to the needs of community college transfers and promoting and sharing best practices for transfer success. It also highlights the rich perspective and diversity community college students bring to four-year universities, and ultimately to the nation’s workforce.
Phi Theta Kappa is the oldest, largest and most prestigious honor society recognizing students pursuing two-year degrees. It is made up of more than 3 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters in nine nations.
