NETA State Working Groups Information Session & End of Fall 2023 Celebration
Register Here.

We encourage you to join us to learn more about our new region-wide effort to support each other and our students. We will share more information about the convening of working groups on January 19th in person throughout New England to discuss essential issues that affect our students and what we can do to best support them in their pursuit of higher education, across 2-year and 4-year schools. Also an opportunity to propose topics for our first convening of our state groups in January. 

We will be looking for volunteers to be state Team Captains, and if any schools are willing to host their state’s working group meeting. 

We will also use the second half of our hour to toast getting through another semester, celebrating our successes, and supporting each other in the struggles we face. We’re also hoping to offer some games/activities!

NETA State Working Groups – Collaborating on Strategies to Best Support Transfer Students
This event will be held in person - details forthcoming

Groups from all six states will convene in person to discuss critical issues for us and our students. The state groups will connect virtually at the end of the event to share what the teams discussed as a part of those discussions. We will also look to share interesting findings at our conference in April. 

This will be an opportunity for higher education professionals from 2-year and 4-year institutions to connect in a neutral environment to collaborate. 

We hope to involve advisors, transfer counselors, admissions officers, registrars, student success, and any other departments on our campus that support transfer students
