Our most recent Leadership Conference was held at the Hard Rock Hotel in Orlando, Florida this past fall and we are looking forward to our next conference in Washington, D.C. on September 29 - October 1! The meeting will be held at the Hilton Washington D.C. National Mall at the Wharf. We look forward to networking and learning more about what our Tau Sigma chapters are doing across the country!
We recently awarded $100,000 in scholarships, ranging from $500 to $5,000, to 57 different members! Congratulations to those who received a scholarship! We have also surpassed the $1,000,000 mark on total scholarships awarded!
Representatives of Tau Sigma will be presenting at the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students Annual Meeting in Portland, OR in February. We look forward to meeting transfer advocates from all over the country and laying the foundation to establish some additional Tau Sigma chapters. This year’s theme is "Be a Connector for Transfer Student Success." Tau Sigma has been doing that for 20+ years and we are excited to share our story with colleges and universities that don’t yet have a chapter!
Our most recent Leadership Conference was held at the Hard Rock Hotel in Orlando, Florida on September 23-25! There were 75 in attendance, representing 25 different schools! Between networking, attending sessions, listening to speakers, and sightseeing, the attendees came away with new friends and some great ideas for their chapters!
Our next Leadership Conference will be in Washington, D.C. We hope to see you there!
In 2022, we awarded $100,000 in scholarships, ranging from $500 to $5,000, to 71 different members! Congratulations to those who received a scholarship! We will be gathering applications for the next round of scholarships again this fall.
The Transfer-Year Experience program at UT Austin will again host the Transfer Summit this year as a series of 90-minute webinar sessions on April 4, 6, and 7! This convening will be FREE to all student, staff, and faculty participants. The call for proposals for student-led sessions is now open! They would love to showcase a program, training, or transfer story from your institution with students, staff, and faculty from across the country. Last year, they had over 600 registered attendees, and the session recordings have been viewed over 1,000 times. Your session could inform and inspire real change for transfer students!
Our next Leadership Conference is scheduled for September 23-25, 2022 in Orlando, FL. We will be staying at the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando, which is within walking distance of Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. We hope to see you there!
