The Florida Consortium of Metropolitan Research Universities will host the Florida Summit on Accelerating Transfer Success on Monday, October 26, 2020.
In its third year, the all-day virtual conference is a forum where higher education professionals can gather and share best strategies, techniques and tools for transfer student success. This year, the work has shifted dramatically due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Instruction and student engagement will be online or blended for the foreseeable future. As such, the summit is designed to help transfer professionals design the most engaging experience for transfer students.
Vice President of Academic Affairs Isis Artze-Vega will moderate two of the four event panels along with other professionals. Specifically, she will join the State College Transfer Counseling and Coaching During COVID-19 panel and the Being a Transfer Student in the Time of COVID-19 panel.
“Transfer is central to our Valencia mission, and we’re gearing up for the development of institutional plans in the spring, ones that will build on and enhance our transfer efforts,” she said. “I’m looking forward to this opportunity to engage with and learn from two sets of key stakeholders: transfer students and transfer professionals.”
The Florida Consortium of Research Universities is comprised of Florida International University, the University of Central Florida (UCF) and the University of South Florida. This year, UCF is hosting the event.
