Rachel Beech, associate vice president for enrollment management at California State University, San Bernardino was quoted in a report called “Bucking the Trend: How Some Institutions Grew Their Transfer Enrollment Amid a Pandemic.”

“They’ve been really successful, but they’re not equitably distributed,” said Beech, where the number of students entering with ADTs grew from 2 in the fall of 2013 to 1,192 this fall.
