Faculty Summit of the Sociology Regional Council was held on February 23rd, 2018 at California State University, Channel Islands. The purpose of the regional faculty summits is to promote communication and coordination across our regional institutions – Oxnard College, Ventura College, and CSU Channel Islands. Faculty in all three programs share a common goal of increasing the rates of transfer, and, more importantly, increasing the success of those students who do choose to transfer to CSUCI or any four-year institution The focus of the first Faculty Summit was to discuss curriculum related issues with an eye toward transfer success, including issues of curricular articulation, reflection on common courses from the standpoint of student success, and explore student expectations and identify areas of challenges.
