Paul Tubig, a 2018-2019 Mellon Fellow with the Reaching New Publics program at the Simpson Center for the Humanities, has been exploring connections between the University of Washington and the Seattle Colleges this year. Previously, Paul has blogged for the Simpson Center about the question "What Kind of Academics Should We Be?"
In a new guest blog post, Paul describes the "transfer shock" experienced by students when they move from community colleges to four-year institutions. Paul describes his own experience with transfer shock, his observations on some of the disconnects between these two systems of higher education, and recommendations for a way forward.
