The conclusion reflects on three themes emerging from the book: (a) recognition of emerging patterns and pathways of transfer mobility, (b) the need for increased intentionality in institutional attention to and support for transfers, and (c) a renewed call for specially designed programs and enhanced support for transfer students. We highlight areas where progress has been made in our approach to transfer students in the past decade and where significant work remains.
