The Student Transfer Engagement, Access, and Mentoring (STEAM) commission aims to help the transition of transfer students into a research university through a student-led mentorship program. This is achieved through a series of weekly lessons intended to bolster their knowledge of resources and programs at UCI. We also focus on teaching strategies that can ensure academic success as well as provide a space for mentoring from fellow transfer students. Thus litigating a community that breaks the issue of transfer shock.
During our weekly lessons, both the commission’s interns and the program’s mentors will assist in facilitating workshops and leading discussions surrounding the transfer experience. Classes will be held for an optional 1.3 P/NP units on Thursdays from 4-5:20 PM in both the Fall and Winter Quarter.
Given the circumstances of this year, remote opportunities will be made available so that those who cannot attend in-person may still participate in class sessions and enjoy STEAM events.
