How important are community college transfer agreements?

Pando Rao Editorial

Great question. A great answer came in an editorial that appeared in The Richmond Times-Dispatch on Wednesday, June 30.
Reynolds President Paula Pando and VCU President Michael Rao teamed up to help readers grasp the critical role community colleges and transfer opportunities play in the life and health of our community, and its rebuilding in the aftermath of the pandemic.
From the RTD
