Goals/Mission of STP

The Office of Student Transition Programs, aligning with the divisional mission, aims to provide integrated student-centered educational activities that engages our urban commuter campus and promotes a holistic approach to student success and engaged learning.

The Office of Student Transition Programs creates dynamic, student-centered experiences to inspire purposeful transitions and equip students and their family members with resources, guidance and peer connections.

These experiences include, but are not limited to: Accepted Students Day, New Student Orientation, Weeks of Welcome, Convocation, Commencement Week, Commencement, and the Peer Ambassador Leadership Program.
