Using a Multidisciplinary Framework to Understand the Benefits of a Transfer Student Mentoring Program

Knowledge Community Virtual Events

Our university’s Transfer Student Center created a peer mentoring program grounded in academic research on supporting marginalized student populations. Utilizing both psychological and sociocultural perspectives to assess program efficacy, results suggest that this holistic programming approach aimed at increasing efficacy, belonging, and service use is a valuable model in supporting transfer student success. The multidisciplinary framework and mixed method design are valuable strengths to consider when creating and assessing program efficacy.
