The National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition invites you to exhibit with us. Conferences are attended by faculty members, academic deans, campus chief executive officers, student affairs professionals, counselors, learning specialists, first-year program directors, institutional researchers, assessment practitioners, and students from two-year and four-year colleges and universities.

Many participants will be in the process of making immediate decisions about course texts, technology resources, assessment resources, and other materials, and may be unfamiliar with the range of publications, products, and services available.
