CortneyJo Sandidge, Assistant Vice Provost of the First-Year Experience for the Division of Student Success
University of Tennessee-Knoxville
This presentation will explore the new Division of Student Success Vol First-Year Experience (VFYE) Initiative. This initiative includes two seminars that connect first-year and first semester transfer students to the UT community. First-Year Seminars are considered a high-impact practice to increase student engagement, student success and encourage welcoming students into a community of scholars. Also, this high impact practice helps students build meaningful relationships with faculty, staff, and other students. The VFYE will expose students to campus resources and create positive early experiences that increase student persistence, retention, and success.
