“Transition and Transformation: Fostering Transfer Student Success” highlights the experience of practitioners involved in the day-to-day work of serving students in a variety of institutional contexts: public and private, two-year and four-year.
The book’s authors are from all across the country, as well as organizations and foundations that are invested in improving the American higher education system.
“Many professionals are asked to step into a transfer-related role without much training or support,” said Judith Brauer, assistant director for NISTS. “This publication is designed to be a practical, hands-on guide for them to use to improve the lives of transfer students.”
NISTS was founded in 2002 by UNG President Bonita C. Jacobs in response to a lack of professional development opportunities and research literature focused specifically on transfer students.
