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 16th 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.
