Abstract

The Arizona State University and the Maricopa Community Colleges have a history of collaboration that is acclaimed as a model across the nation. However, Arizona State University East and Maricopa Community College District together are working diligently to ele vate their educational partnership to a new level beyond traditional articulation. This paper describes the innovative nature of the educational partnership that exists between the two-year and four-year institutions at the Williams Campus.

In a short five years it has moved well beyond the conventional articulation, described above. Joint curriculum development, infrastructure planning, academic scheduling and sharing institutional data have marked the uniqueness of the partnership between these two institutions. The special collaboration extends to housing and academic/student support services as well. The primary focus of this paper is to illustrate the innovative educational partnership and its benefits to the students attending ASU East, CGCC and other Maricopa Community Colleges.
