Be a Speaker for our Transfer Week Webinar Series
In recent years, CollegeSource has hosted a community-led webinar series around the topic of transfer during National Transfer Student Week. This year, we want you to join us on the virtual stage. Our fourth Transfer Week Webinar Series will take place October 18-22 and we are currently accepting speaker proposals. Mark your calendars for a week of exciting conversation, and take the poll below to let us know what you want to hear about!
What is Transfer Student Week?
Every year during the third week of October, the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students (NISTS) encourages institutions to celebrate transfer students and the people that support them through various initiatives from running professional development workshops and conducting surveys, to sharing transfer stories and hosting student forums. CollegeSource has participated by providing a week-long platform for users in the community to discuss important issues around transfer with and for their industry peers. Last year, for the first time, we also offered product demonstrations with Q&A for attendees to see our transfer solutions, TES and Transferology, in action, as well as small group discussions and an end-of-week Happy Hour co-hosted with Transfer Nation on Zoom. Aside from joining in on our webinars, there are plenty of activities your campus can do to participate! Check out NISTS’ Transfer Week ideas.
