Both the Cause and the Cure: Understanding Racial Inequity in the Transfer Process

Eboni Zamani-Gallaher

As community colleges are a prime vehicle for postsecondary education for racially minoritized students, the transfer function reflects promise and paradox relative to educational outcomes. There is inequity in transfer rates and differential degree conferral among racial groups.

This session featuring College of Education scholar Dr. Eboni Zamani-Gallaher will discuss the transfer gap by race/ethnicity, the critical need to address this issue in bolstering completion, and action steps to foster transfer equity. Her presentation will be a part of the 17th annual Conference of the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students. View the conference program.

Dr. Zamani-Gallaher is the director of the Office of Community College Research and Leadership, a professor and associate head in the Department of Education Policy, Organization & Leadership, and an associate dean at the Graduate College.
