April 11 and 12
The Transfer Student Leadership Summit brings together transfer student leaders from four-year colleges and universities to share their transfer experiences, identify common themes, present on transfer support initiatives, and build peer networks.
The few opportunities that exist for colleges and universities to come together and discuss transfer student success are incredibly powerful for staff and faculty members. However, students have even fewer opportunities to attend or participate in these impactful discussions. The Transfer-Year Experience (TYE) program within the School of Undergraduate Studies at The University of Texas at Austin is excited to host a convening to help strengthen transfer support among students, staff, and faculty.
This April, we will host two 90-minute zoom meetings for a fully online Transfer Summit. We will hear from transfer student leaders and experts from around the country on topics related to transfer belonging, health, and support.
- April 11: Transfer Trends and Issues — Zoom session access
- April 12: Transfer Transition Zoom session access
As in previous years, the Summit is free of cost to the participants. In fact, we will have drawings to give a pair of Apple AirPods to an attendee at each session!
Who Should Attend?
The 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 are welcome to participate and may co-present with students.
