Instead of the one-directional expectation that transfer students adapt to our institutional environment, we recognize that the university also has a responsibility to make research-based adjustments to become more receptive to transfer students. Given the shifting landscape of US postsecondary education, we believe all four-year institutions could benefit from undertaking similar processes of mutual adjustment, facilitating transfer students’ transitions by seeking to understand their situated experiences as writers and developing locally sensitive curricular and programmatic responses.
