Project RAISE aims to foster comprehensive and collaborative efforts of all key constituents at community colleges and four-year institutions. The Project RAISE articulation conference:

  • will help formalize and streamline the process of standardizing articulation agreements between the community colleges and CSUF and enable community college counselors and faculty to properly advise their students.
  • is intended to be a way to share the latest updates about enrollment targets, impactions, and course articulation and associate degrees for transfer, as well as engage in dialogue about new models for articulation agreements.
  • will create networking opportunities that will enable community college representatives to get to know the CSUF personnel who can answer their questions.


Audience & presenters

The conference is hosted at CSUF and attended by STEM deans, faculty, counselors, and staff from the eight Project RAISE partner community colleges to help us better advise students about transferring. These partner colleges are: Citrus, Cypress, Fullerton, Golden West, Mt. San Antonio, Orange Coast, Santa Ana, and Santiago Canyon.

We consider the following majors at CSUF part of STEM:

  • Natural Sciences and Mathematics: Biochemistry, Biological Science, Chemistry, Earth Science, Geology, Mathematics, Physics
  • Engineering and Computer Science: Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering

Presentations are led by faculty and administrators from CSUF admissions and CSUF Colleges of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (NSM) and Engineering and Computer Science (ECS).

We invite CSUF, partner community college, and external presenters for the conference -- please contact Megan Drangstveit if interested in presenting.
