Tulsa Transfer Project

Tulsa Transfer Project

Initiated in fall 2018, the Tulsa Transfer Project is a collaborative effort designed to improve the transfer student experience and increase the number of bachelor’s degrees in the metro area. In addition to NSU, other institutions participating in the project are Oklahoma State University, Rogers State University, Langston University, University of Tulsa, and of course, Tulsa Community College.

Using the John N. Gardner Institute’s Foundations of Excellence framework, NSU is completing a self-study reviewing the total transfer experience. Dimension committees have reviewed survey data, policies, and practices impacting transfer students, and are completing reports and recommendations based on the self-study process. While the project’s impetus has been transfer in the Tulsa metro area and the Broken Arrow campus, the lessons learned from this self-study can improve transfer experiences on all NSU campuses.

In late spring 2019, a comprehensive institutional report and recommendations with implementation plans to begin during the next academic year, was presented to Cabinet. The Foundations of Excellence Comprehensive report is now available to read for the university community.

The Dimension Committees are led by the following faculty and staff. Anyone with an interest in participating in the implementation phase can contact the co-chairs of that committee.
