The Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society selected Marquette University as one of 40 colleges and universities nationwide for excellence in the creation of community college transfer pathways.
Marquette was listed on the society’s inaugural Excellence in Community College Transfer Honor Roll and received special recognition at Phi Theta Kappa’s annual convention in National Harbor, Maryland, earlier this month.
Applications were judged on engagement, collaboration, impact and achievements related to the transfer of community college students, as well as partnerships, support, admissions outreach, scholarships/financial aid, student engagement opportunities and institutional priorities.
Phi Theta Kappa is the oldest and largest honor society recognizing students pursuing two-year degrees with nearly 1,300 chapters in nine countries.
“With this designation, we hope to connect community college students with institutions who value their unique transfer experience and prioritize their success,” said Christin Grissom, the honor society’s director of scholarship operations.
