Executive Leadership and Transfer Receptivity: Transforming Culture and the Student Experience (ID 602)

Institutional cultures are disproportionately shaped by policies and procedures, shortchanging the student experience. Inversely, traditional approaches to the study of transfer places the responsibility of transferring on the student, not the institution. Combining the perspectives of leaders in student and academic affairs, enrollment management, and transfer programs, this session aims to put transfer students squarely at the center of the conversation. Challenging executive leaders to holistically explore the elements of a transfer receptive culture and begin formulating specific strategies to assist under-served students in the transfer process will serve this purpose.
