NISTS honors efforts of transfer pros

The National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students (NISTS) hosted its annual conference in-person Feb. 2-4 in St. Louis, with a virtual option Feb. 23-24, with 928 in attendance between the two events.

This was the first time in recent years the conference was held outside of Atlanta.

It also marked the 20th anniversary of the organization. University of North Georgia (UNG) President Bonita Jacobs founded the institute in response to a lack of professional development opportunities and research literature focused specifically on transfer students. The institute is based on UNG’s Dahlonega Campus.

Themed “From Moment to Movement: Shaping the Future of Transfer,” the conference highlighted presentations, networking opportunities and awards in both in-person and virtual formats.

“The theme resonated with our attendees. These professionals are living through national moments of the pandemic, calls for an end to systemic racism and the great resignation while students engaging in meaningful individual moments,” Dr. Janet Marling, NISTS executive director and associate professor in UNG’s College of Education said.
