On February 1 from 4:10 – 5:00 pm ET, Pooja Patel will participate in a National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students (NISTS) annual conference session on “Using a university-wide initiative to fuel transfer reforms.” This session provides an overview of the continued development of Transfer Explorer, a tool introduced at the 2022 NISTS conference that aims to reduce loss of transfer credit, and its adoption at the City University of New York (CUNY) as part of a University-wide initiative to improve vertical transfer. Strategies and ideas will be presented on how attendees can advance transparent policies and procedures at their own institutions. Other panelists include Christopher Buonocore, Christopher Vickery, and Kara Hefferman. See the full schedule here.
