Whereas, Co-curricular programs significantly impact student transfer success and access by enabling students to attain scholarships and transfer acceptance to universities and professional schools (i.e., law school and medical school);
Whereas, Many universities are using `holistic' application processes in response to the June 2003 U.S. Supreme Court decision that ruled that the University of Michigan's undergraduate admissions process was unconstitutional, and consequently, co-curricular participation directly impacts a student's transfer success;
Whereas, Co-curricular programs enable students to increase their ability to enter into leadership roles and salient decision-making roles through their enhanced learning and experience derived through participation in co-curricular programs; and
