Transfer Partnerships

The High-Performing Partnerships Study (HPTP) is focusing on how higher performing transfer partnerships between 2- and 4-year colleges and universities (which may identify as partnerships) work on the ground. By higher performing, we refer to relationships between 2- and 4-year institutions that enroll higher proportions of historically underserved students who are achieving higher rates of success in baccalaureate retention and completion than other institutions in the study. Our mixed methods studies in states across the country examine ways in which 2- and 4-year institutions influence student success, and we disseminate our findings broadly in the academic, policy, and practical literature.
