Message from the Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Success
by Esther Goodcuff, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Success
As you will see from reading this semester’s student profiles, transfer students thrive at Adelphi.
As you will see from reading this semester’s student profiles, transfer students thrive at Adelphi. Our complete commitment to fostering their smooth transition includes: pre-enrollment events, carefully targeted academic advisement, e-tools to assist with understanding transfer credit and early program planning, transfer-specific admissions, financial aid, peer-to-peer counseling, transfer orientation programs and post-enrollment student life activities purposely designed to assist new transfers’ integration into the Adelphi community.
Several years ago, I developed the Transfer Initiatives Committee, an award-winning interdepartmental team of Adelphi professionals whose sole purpose was, and still is, to study the needs of transfer students and develop pre- and post-enrollment opportunities that facilitate their smooth transition. This committee continues to meet and strives to build on best practices developed to benefit our transfer students.
At Adelphi, transfer students are a focus, never an afterthought, and I think that this rings true in the student profiles and opportunities highlighted in our newsletter.
Ours is a vibrant campus, whose community is both welcoming to transfer students and enhanced by their presence. As our newly inaugurated president, Christine Riordan, Ph.D., always says, “People make the place” and transfer students are among our people!
Enjoy the semester.
