  Developing Effective Advising Strategies for Transfer Students and Other Special Populations  
(Seminar/Conference)

While it is typical for transfer students to arrive on campus with specific issues and needs, many of these students are also “at-risk” because they are first-generation, students of color, student-athletes, and/or under-prepared to cope with the demands and environments of highly competitive four-year campuses. Many transfer students also report not receiving the kind of outreach (intrusive advising) that increasingly characterizes their experiences in two-year colleges. This presentation will highlight specific challenges confronted by transfer students as a means of developing effective individual and institutional interventions to meet the needs of transfer and other at-risk cohorts. The guest speaker will be Thomas Brown (Thomas Brown & Associates) who is a nationally recognized speaker on issues related to supporting the achievement and success of at-risk students.

We hope to see you there! Thank you.
