Our Invitation to You
The Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience provides an ongoing forum where higher education professionals can share experiences, concerns, and accomplishments related to supporting student learning, development, and success in the first college year. The First-Year Experience Conference series provides a relaxed environment conducive to intensive learning and professionally enriching discussions. We invite you to be a part of productive collaborations, conversations, and relationships as we gather in San Diego.
The Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience is pleased to offer discounted registration fees to the following participants:
The Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience is designed to provide educators from every segment of higher education a comfortable, welcoming environment to share innovative ideas, programs, tools, and research critical to the learning, development, and success of first-year college students. The conference aims to promote a comprehensive and engaging community open to a diversity of ideas, in which all delegates are given the opportunity and resources to grow personally and professionally. The conference welcomes graduate and undergraduate students, encouraging them to deepen their knowledge of the academic communities of which they are a part.
The National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition is offering five undergraduate student fellowships that will cover the registration fee for the Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience. To learn more or to apply for these fellowships, visit http://sc.edu/fye/awards/undergraduate/ or contact Lynn Gold at (803) 777-3984. The application will be available via the Center's web site beginning August 19, 2013 with a submission deadline of November 8, 2013.
Limited to 25 mentors and mentees each
Now in its fourth year, the Mentoring Program connects conference attendees new to FYE work with more experienced educators with a goal of enhancing the conference experience and providing additional networking opportunities. The program is not highly structured, allowing participants to determine the nature and frequency of their interactions. Mentors and mentees are matched based on professional experiences and interests, and past participants have found it both enjoyable and meaningful. Mentor Program participants gather at an exclusive meet and greet event that occurs just prior to the Opening Session on Saturday, February 15, 2014.
