Call for Submissions
The global outbreak of COVID-19 is causing widespread disruption in higher education,
and the editors of E-Source want to collect the stories of how institutions are adapting to this unprecedented
crisis. How can our response reshape our understanding of teaching, learning, and
student success initiatives? How will these experiences change our delivery of educational
services moving forward, and how might they help us manage future disruptions?
The October 2020 issue will feature a special collection of short narratives. Please
join us by submitting a brief description of your campus’s response to the pandemic
at bit.ly/ESForm20. The deadline is Friday, May 1. Email us at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Volume 17, Issue 2 The March 2020 issue of E-Source for College Transitions is now available. This issue begins with a look at how staff at Rollins College are
making a concerted effort to increase student engagement with its career center. Meanwhile
at Merrimack College, faculty are piloting themed first-year seminars to weave more
academic content into the course and stimulate first-year students’ interests in different
fields of study. Virginia Tech faculty have developed a meta-major for incoming students
who are interested in multiple colleges or majors, and Oakland University staff discuss
engagement programs designed specifically for second- and transfer-year students.
