Student Success

The transition to college is stressful for nearly all students. Many students move to a new place, where they become disconnected from their network of support and are expected to quickly integrate socially and academically in a new context. Although the stress of the transition can affect anyone, students from traditionally minoritized and underrepresented backgrounds experience this stress disproportionately. This institutional collaboration brings insights and best practices captured from researchers, faculty, advisors, and students in order to build a campus where every student can feel they belong. (Pitt Undergraduate Students: visit Belonging on the Undergraduate Studies website for resources and information specific to students.)
