Kent State’s work with the Ascendium Education Group

This report, authored by the Aspen Institute College Excellence Program, explores how Kent State University (KSU), Columbus State Community College (CSCC), Eastern Gateway Community College (EGCC), and Lorain County Community College (LCCC) collaborated over three years (2019-2022) on a project funded by Ascendium Education Group to ensure that education at a community college can be a seamless first step to bachelor's degree completion. Together, the project team developed degree pathways and a student success framework to support vertical transfer. The report details the highly replicable transfer pathway development process the partners utilized and also documents challenges faced and lessons learned to aid others across the state of Ohio who wish to enhance the success of vertical transfer students in completing bachelor's degrees through interinstitutional collaboration.
