The National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition
provides insight and thought leadership on how institutions of higher education support
successful and equitable student transitions.
We are committed to crafting and conducting high-quality research that expands our
understanding of transitions. We achieve this by engaging in inquiry on a wide range
of student success supports including, but intentionally beyond, The First-Year Experience;
contributing and pushing conversation on creating equitable higher education environments
supporting student transitions; and disseminating information gathered through research
to create spaces for conversation that will intentionally connect research to practice.
