Through an intentional cross-pollination of ideas and expertise from practitioners, researchers, faculty, policy-makers, and administrators, the NISTS annual conference offers a balanced and comprehensive examination of the pressing issues and obstacles related to transfer student success.
The conference provides tangible and practical strategies to improve transfer student programs and services. We equip professionals with the knowledge and skills needed to actively advocate for transfer students, challenge the status quo, and reach beyond specific roles to develop holistic student experiences.
