Because the classroom (whether virtual or physical) is an essential spot for facilitating student learning, belonging, and connections, college faculty have an undeniable part to play in supporting transfer student success. In this one-hour webinar, we’ll introduce a new NISTS guide designed to help faculty get ready to support their transfer students this fall.
Deadline to Submit:

If you've developed a promising transfer program, service, or research project, we want to know about it! NISTS invites submissions for pre-conference workshops, concurrent sessions, on-demand videos, and poster presentations for our 20th annual conference next February, which will include both in-person and virtual presentation options.
How to Create a Comprehensive, Transfer-Centered Website
NISTS partnered with mStoner to conduct a year-long research project exploring the ideal transfer website. The result of our study is a comprehensive transfer website strategy guide that details best practices and tools for creating and maintaining a transfer-friendly site that addresses students’ top needs and concerns.
