Student Transitions (Academic)

We develop and coordinate academic programs that emphasize student success and skill development, and focus on the transition of students into, through, and out of the University. During University, students are in “transition,” always changing, developing and growing. With proper academic support, students can reach their potential and become successful life long learners.

Our Student Transition Specialist in Academic Learning works closely with their counterpart in Student Services (the Student Transition Specialist in Student Development and Engagement). Their work includes:

  • Planning and co-ordinating the University’s Welcome Weeks.
  • Collaborating campus wide on First Year Experience program development.
  • Researching the field of student transitions and best practises.
  • Working with students, faculty and staff to develop/recommend institutional best practise, resulting in success for the entire University community.
