FRAMING THE CENTRAL QUESTION
How can 2-year and 4-year institutions partner to
facilitate early and sustained success for transfer students
,
to foster their academic and social engagement across institutions, and to help launch them into
meaningful STEM careers?



CREATING OUR VISION
At the heart of this project is our deep, shared commitment to student success: ensuring
equal access
to a range of
educational opportunities
, offering a comprehensive
network of support
, and fostering excellence across the
STEM disciplines...




CREATING OUR VISION
...With these resources, we encourage students to
actively engage
in their own learning, enthusiastically pursue their
academic milestones
, and make
meaningful career choices
...





CREATING OUR VISION
...As institutional partners, we seek to ground this work in
reciprocal and respectful relationships
, and to build strong
collaborative
structures that
sustain
this significant work.
