UUP "Fact Sheet on Seamless Transfer / Core Curriculum"
http://uupinfo.org/reports/guides/SeamlessTransfer913.pdf

"The outdoor luncheon, sponsored by the Albany Chapter, drew more than 250 members on a gorgeous late summer afternoon. They listened as Kowal discussed challenges facing the union—such as seamless transfer, privatization, and the potential separation of the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering from UAlbany—and how Albany UUPers can help UUP meet those challenges."
