Description

With limited time, energy, and finances, institutions are unable to allocate the necessary resources to support each and every student subpopulation. As a result, transfer students are frequently viewed as “square pegs” that institutions try to fit in the “round holes” of categories like first-year students or visiting and exchange students. In this session, after the presentation of an assessment project and the resulting collaborative and cost saving approaches of one institution, participants will be encouraged to think critically and economically about creative initiatives to specifically foster transfer student success.
