MVCC, SUNY-IT transfer coordinators join forces at national conference

Michael Henningsen, Mohawk Valley Community College’s Coordinator of Transfer Services, and Kaylynn Iglesias, Transfer Coordinator from SUNY-IT, were selected to present at the 12th Annual National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students conference held in Atlanta, GA from Feb 5-7.

“It was a great honor to be selected to present at this conference,” said Henningsen. “To have the ability to share information that we implemented here at MVCC and SUNY-IT and receive such positive feedback from transfer colleagues from around the country was a great experience.”

The National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students (NISTS) was founded in 2002; by Dr. Bonita Jacons in response to a lack of professional development opportunities and research literature focused specifically on higher education transfer students.

Henningsen and Iglesias presented on the tools and strategies they have imple¬mented to build and strengthen the relationships between MVCC and SUNY-IT.
