ABOUT NISTS

VISION


We envision a world where every higher education professional and institution provides a holistic and inclusive transfer student experience.

 

 

MISSION  


We empower practitioners, faculty, and administrators to be transfer champions – agents, connectors, and advocates – who challenge the status quo to improve the transfer student experience.

 

 

CORE VALUES


We value the power of education to build the empathy, knowledge, and skills needed to confidently influence change and drive improvements to the transfer student experience. 

 

We value the necessity of using research and evidence from a variety of sources to inspire our work and inform solutions around the complexities and challenges of transfer. 

 

We value the critical role of advocacy in ensuring today’s mobile learners, who possess unique backgrounds, needs, and identities, have access to the opportunities and resources they need to achieve their academic goals.
