Transition and Transformation: Fostering Transfer Student Success
Editors: Stephen J. Handel and Eileen Strempel, University of North Georgia Press, 2016

This book highlights the experience of practitioners involved in the day-to-day work of serving students in a variety of institutional contexts: public and private, two-year and four-year.

The authors hail from institutions around the country, as well as foundations and organizations that are devoted to the important work of improving American higher education. Their insight—often culled from years of experience—provides a set of strategies that will be useful to two- and four-year institution faculty and staff who are interested in improving the transfer process.

In addition, this publication will inform policymakers who are grappling with state and national higher education issues and who seek new ideas about closing the achievement gap and increasing higher education completion rates.

This volume is dedicated to exploring this new normal and has been written with a broad constituency in mind.
