Honor Recognizes Exemplary Transfer Pathways
Antioch University Midwest has been named to the 2018 Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Honor Roll, which identifies the top four-year colleges and universities creating dynamic pathways to support transfer students. AUM Provost and CEO, Marian Glancy said, “Antioch University Midwest is honored to be named to the 2018 Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Honor Roll. Together, with our community college partners, we look forward to educating PTK students in the Southwest Ohio region as future leaders.”
Over the past 18 months, Antioch University Midwest has instituted a number of articulation agreements with local partners, including Clark State, Southern State, and Sinclair community colleges, that provide 3+1 and 2+2 pathways for their students. “Antioch has shown themselves to not only be transfer friendly to our community college graduates but has gone beyond to define clear pathways of articulation for our many programs,” said Dr. Peggy Chalker, Dean of Articulation and Transfer at Southern State Community College.
“Antioch University has provided the convenience in scheduling without compromise of quality and academic rigor, providing our students with the challenge they seek and the ability to obtain their degree in a non-traditional manner,” Dr. Chalker continued.
Open to all regionally accredited baccalaureate degree-granting institutions, applications were evaluated in the areas of scholarship and financial aid, admissions outreach, student support services, and student engagement opportunities.
“In order to ensure [the students’] continued success, the Transfer Honor Roll Program identifies colleges and universities that understand the unique needs of transfer students and applauds the dynamic pathways these colleges have created to continue fostering student success among transfer students at the four-year college,” said Phi Theta Kappa President and CEO, Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner.
“Being named to the 2018 PTK Transfer Honor Roll showcases AUM’s excellence and success in creating dynamic pathways to support community college transfers. AUM will continue to look for opportunities to make an undergraduate education affordable and accessible to PTK transfer students throughout Southwest Ohio,” said Antioch University Midwest Undergraduate Studies Chair, Sonya Fultz.
