The Transfer Student Leadership Summit aims to bring together transfer student leaders from four-year colleges and universities across Texas to share their transfer experiences, identify common themes, present on transfer support initiatives, and build peer networks. Though students will lead the sessions on campus support programs, staff and faculty members are invited to co-present and network at the summit. Learn more about submitting a presentation proposal.
Few opportunities exist for Texas colleges and universities to come together and discuss transfer student success. Students have even fewer opportunities to attend or participate in such discussions. The Transfer-Year Experience (TYE) program within the School of Undergraduate Studies at The University of Texas at Austin is excited to host the summit and help strengthen transfer support among students, staff, and faculty across the state. After taking last year off, the Transfer Summit is back and has even more to offer participants!
Thank you to everyone who attended the 2018 Transfer Student Leadership Summit! We are excited to host you again in 2020. For highlights, quotes, and pictures from the event, please click here.
Who Should Attend?
This summit aims to attract students who are currently making a difference for transfer students at their campus or those who are interested in starting transfer support initiatives at their institution. Attendees should not only include transfer students, but student leaders who support transfer students. Staff and faculty members from participating institutions may co-present with students and network with colleagues throughout the summit.
