Abstract

Enhancing the student experience in their first year at university requires: students to encounter curriculum that is sensitive to their realities, adequate and timely access to support services, and opportunities for them to become part of communities of learners. Leveraging from the foundations of extensive curriculum reform, two faculties and two divisions in a large university embarked on a project that seeks to systematise a transition philosophy of engagement across academic, professional and administrative silos. This paper describes the pilot phase of this ambitious program of change.
