NATIONAL TRANSFER STUDENT WEEK
OCTOBER 19-23, 2020
WHAT IS NTSW?
NISTS organizes National Transfer Student Week to celebrate transfer students and the professionals who support them on their journeys.
Today's students are transferring more than ever before. As transfer champions, it's vitally important that we build awareness of common transfer barriers and the diverse student needs and identities within our transfer populations. Although the transition between institutions is inherently complex, we believe that transfer is a good and valuable pathway to bachelor's degree completion.
Join us for this annual event, every third week of October, to challenge
assumptions, build empathy, and instill transfer pride on your campus.
THIS YEAR'S THEME
THE POWER OF STORIES
Although transfer-focused research has increased over the years, scholarship alone cannot provide a full picture of the transfer student experience. National Transfer Student Week offers the perfect opportunity to highlight transition struggles and successes and unite your campus partners in advocating on behalf of your specific transfer population. The transfer stories below reflect a small fraction of the first-hand accounts we’ve heard through the years and may be similar to your students’ experiences.
What type of stories do you tend to hear? How might they inform new and existing transfer initiatives at your institution?
