The Student Transitions Council will promote support for students during periods of transition, including but not limited to 1) the period from acceptance through the middle of the fall semester for first year students and for transfer students and 2) the senior year, as students prepare to transition from college to the work force or graduate studies. The council will provide advice regarding planning and strategic direction and make recommendations concerning the development of policies, procedures, and programs relating to issues of student transition. In its work, the Council should be particularly mindful of the need for thoughtful coordination between academic and non-academic realms
The Council will forward planning recommendations to the Provost/VPAA, the VPSA, and/or the VPEM and to CSPP, which will determine whether further governance action is needed and will share substantive recommendations with the campus for public input. Recommendations concerning policy, procedure, and program should be forwarded to the Steering Committee. In addition, the Council’s recommendation concerning the need for a council within governance should be forwarded to the Steering committee.
