An Invitation to Educators Committed to Student Learning and Success

Students experience significant transitions from the beginning of their undergraduate experience through graduation. As college educators, we are challenged to provide support for them and improve their entire undergraduate experience. At the 22nd National Conference on Students in Transition, attendees will share with and learn from each other the latest trends, initiatives, best practices, ideas, research, and assessment strategies focused on supporting student success in the first college year and beyond. We invite you to be a part of this exciting learning experience!

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.
