The Transfer Experience: Creating a More Equitable and Successful Postsecondary System
November 8 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
For most students, the transfer experience in U.S. higher education does not work very well. This was demonstrably the case before Covid, but now more than ever, the current inequitable and outmoded system begs for revolutionizing! This session will present a synthesis of the best thinking of 53 higher education leaders, scholars, researchers, and transfer professionals compiled in a just-published Stylus book, The Transfer Experience: A Handbook for Creating a More Equitable and Successful Postsecondary System. A new construct for understanding and assessing the transfer challenge through a lens of social justice will be presented and debated alongside an examination of the relationship between transfer success and the reaffirmation of accreditation.
Space is limited and registration will close when the event is full. The event will be recorded and distributed to registrants following the live event.
