2022 SOCHE Articulation & Transfer Conference
“Beyond Articulation: Purposeful Transfer” The 2022 SOCHE
“Beyond Articulation: Purposeful Transfer”
The 2022 SOCHE Articulation & Transfer Conference will take place on Friday, Oct. 21, from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. ET via the SOCHE Zoom platform. This year’s theme is “Beyond Articulation: Purposeful Transfer.” Our emphasis this year is how to assist students in being more intentional during their transfer process, how to create seamless transfer experiences for students going from a 2-year school to a 4-year, and what schools can do to better support these efforts.
During this virtual conference, you’ll be able to hear about the latest updates in the articulation and transfer space from the ODHE, and interact with transfer and articulation colleagues from private, public, and community colleges throughout Ohio. You’ll have three transfer-focused concurrent sessions to choose from, then we’ll hear from a panel of 2-year representatives about the front-end of the traditional transfer pipeline. We’ll wrap up our morning with a keynote from renowned higher education researcher John Fink.
Check out the full conference program below!

• Session 1 – Pathway Portal: A Collaborative Effort to Ensure Student Success
The Pathway Portal is an exciting addition to Franklin’s portfolio of tools for transfer partners. Developed in collaboration with Edison State Community College in 2021, the Pathway Portal is a direct connection between Franklin and a community college partner that allows prospective students to view how their credit is applying toward a bachelor’s degree program in real time. This can help students decide on a degree path prior to applying to Franklin. It also eliminates the time spent requesting transcripts, waiting on degree audits, and completing the entire application. The Pathway Portal expanded to Clark State this year and will be linked with several more Ohio and national partners before the end of the year. A demonstration of how it works along with a discussion of the benefits it provides to Franklin, the community college partner, and the students will be included.
Presenters: Jenny Garringer, Franklin University; Jennifer Mack, Franklin University; Stacey Bean, Edison State Community College; and Dr. Travis Binkley, Clark State College
• Session 2 – Transfer Partners and TransferOhio.com: Resources You Can Use
The SW Ohio Transfer Partners Group works collaboratively to advance transfer work in the southwest Ohio and northern Kentucky region. One result of this work is the TransferOhio.com website. Learn more about how you can network with schools in your area and how your school can join the TransferOhio site.
Presenters: Kaci Kortis, University of Cincinnati; Dr. Myshamil Walker, Cincinnati State Technical & Community College; and Dr. Peggy Chalker, Southern State Community College
• Session 3 – Engagement Do’s for the Transitioning Transfer
As they matriculate from the two-year to four-year institutions, some students are impacted by “transfer shock” in a variety of ways. This presentation will dive deeper into collaborative transitional musts to drive transfer engagement success for students and institutions in an interactive way.

|12:00 p.m.||Keynote: From Articulation Agreements to Cross-Sector Talent Pathways
John Fink, Community College Research Center at Teachers College, Columbia University
Our current community college transfer pathway — one that holds great promise for upward economic mobility and social justice — is woefully underperforming and disproportionately impacting Black, Latinx, first-generation, and low-income students. In this keynote, John will argue that, to dramatically improve transfer outcomes and advance equity, K12 schools, community colleges, universities, and employers must take collective responsibility for transfer student success as a regional talent development strategy. Attendees can expect to walk away with research-based insights and resources for better supporting transfer student success and a call to collective action to transform the transfer student experience.
