More Degrees for Angelenos Through Innovative Reverse Transfer Partnership

New Cross-Sector Partnership Engages Adults With Some College But No Degree

California Competes Interim Executive Director Ria Sengupta Bhatt recently chatted with representatives from the L.A. Area Chamber of Commerce, California State University, Northridge (CSUN), and the Los Angeles Community College District about CSUN Connections, a reverse transfer initiative to support adults with some college but no degree in the Los Angeles area. The conversation sheds light on how cross-sector collaborations can help Californians gain meaningful credentials to advance in the workplace and ultimately achieve greater economic and social mobility.
Joining the conversation were:
  • Juana Hernandez, Senior Manager of Postsecondary Initiatives at the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce
  • Dr. Ryan Cornner, Vice Chancellor, Education Programs & Institutional Effectiveness at the Los Angeles Community College District
  • Dr. Deborah Cours, Interim Assistant Vice President of Academic Undergraduate Programs at California State University, Northridge
