E-Source is an e-newsletter that provides practical strategies for supporting student learning and success. Published three times a year, the newsletter and archive are available online with a free subscription.

Current Issue

Volume 17, Issue 3
The July 2020 issue of E-Source for College Transitions begins with a look at how staff at Northern Arizona University built an online advising shell to respond to increased student demand for advising services. The remaining articles focus on strategies for representing low-income, underrepresented students—many of whom come from rural backgrounds. For example, the University of Kansas, Metropolitan Community College, Western Iowa Tech Community College, and Kansas City Kansas Community College collaborated on a college access and transition program designed for children of migrant, seasonal, and temporary farmworkers. All students at Kentucky’s Berea College are low-income, and its summer bridge program seeks to connect first-year students with academic and community support. Finally, the University of Arkansas has launched a summer bridge program to increase college completion and career readiness among underrepresented students from rural parts of the state.
