Transfer Student Engagement Council was convened through the Community College Engagement Initiative (CCEI) in 2015. CCEI was a year-long study designed to review and assess the community college transfer student experience at the UW. The CCEI work has continued through continuing councils such as TSEC and is supported by the Transfer Initiative. Questions about the Transfer Initiative, please contact Martha Tran.
