Early Childhood Articulation Project Compendium


A core value of T.E.A.C.H. is that the workforce has access to coursework with currency; that is, that all college credits articulate between and among all higher education institutions within a state. To strengthen our work around access to higher education, the T.E.A.C.H. National Center worked with 10 T.E.A.C.H. state teams to increase the effectiveness, strength and number of articulation strategies within those states.


Project Goal: Participating states improved articulation of college coursework and degrees from two-year institutions of higher education to four-year institutions within the state by identifying and implementing various strategies that either directly or indirectly affected the intended goal.


Strategies Employed to Advance Articulation Efforts

  • Building relationships with key partners
  • Developing common course curriculum
  • Improving practicum and field work options
  • Analyzing costs
  • Leveraging resources
  • Forming articulation agreements
