An Invitation to Educators Committed to Student Learning and Success
College students experience many changes and transitions throughout their undergraduate years.
As educators, we must provide support for the entire undergraduate experience - from the transition into college through graduation. The 21st National Conference on Students in Transition focuses on this wide range of experiences, including the first college year, the sophomore year, the senior
year, and the transfer transition. Attendees have the opportunity to share with and learn from each
other the latest trends, initiatives, best practices, ideas, research, and assessment strategies
focused on supporting student success in these and other transitions.
Who Should Attend?
Educators interested in the college student experience from the first year through graduation, the
collegiate curriculum, innovative pedagogies, and high-impact practices designed to improve
learning and success for today's undergraduate students should attend. Graduate and
undergraduate students are also encouraged to participate in the conference.
