Points of Contact

Importance of the institutional points of contact

When trying to manage a statewide transfer program, the only way to effectively communicate across the state is through designated contact administrators/faculty who work at each of the public two-year and four-year institutions of higher education in our state. To fulfill this role, the AGSC has establish institutional Points of Contact (POCs). These administrators and their assistants have been selected by their institution's president or chancellor to provide maintenance and support on their campuses for the AGSC & STARS program.

The program's impact and overall effectiveness can be directly tied back to the on-going work of this group. The AGSC and the STARS staff are grateful for the POCs and the service they provide to their students and to our state. These administrators are the "glue" of the AGSC & STARS program. A full listing of the POCs and their roles/responsibilities are are provided below. Please use the buttons below to navigate to the various POC groups.

Appointment of institutional points of contact

The president at each two-year and four-year public institution of higher education appoints one individual to serve as the central AGSC Institutional Point of Contact and one individual to serve as their alternate. Both of these individuals will receive correspondence from the AGSC & STARS office.
