  2. 2. Welcome & Keynote Speaker C105 9:00-10:00am Dr. Karen Archambault began her career as a student affairs professional in 1999. She currently serves as the Director of Student Services for the Branch Campus and Higher Education Centers for Brookdale Community College in New Jersey where she is charged with ensuring that students have a high quality educational experience while attending any of the colleges five regional locations. She supervises a cross-functional Student Success Center team in their efforts toward providing enrollment services, learning assistance, advising, and student life. Prior to her current position, Dr. Archambault was the Program Coordinator for University of Maryland, Baltimore County partnership with the Universities at Shady Grove. In that role, she was responsible for recruitment and retention, including enrollment management, advising, financial aid, disability services, and new student programs/orientation, as well as faculty development and support. Her prior positions included roles in admissions, advising, and program management, all in the Baltimore/Washington, DC area. Dr. Archambault has experience in a wide range of functional areas but has particular research and practice interests in transfer student preparation and retention and in the intersections between academic and student affairs. She is an active member of the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) and NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education and currently serves as the Chair of NACADAs Advising Transfer Students Commission. Dr. Archambault received her Bachelors degree in History from Salisbury University (MD), her Master of Arts in History from Old Dominion University (VA), and her Master of Arts in Counseling from Trinity Washington University (DC). She completed her doctorate in Educational Leadership from Rowan University where her research investigated community college students preparation for transfer. Creating Campus Cultures that Support Transfer Student Success: An Advisor’s Role on Campus When students and administrators think about the role of advisors in transfer, they often think about credit evaluations and course equivalencies. The truth is, advisors can and should serve a much greater role as, for many transfer students, advisors serve as their first window into the world of their new institution. Join Dr. Archambault as she shares her perspectives on the influence of campus culture on the success of transfer students and the role of advisors in welcoming and supporting transfer students, particularly those who are underrepresented on your campus. Advisors will be asked to think both about how sending institutions can prepare students for transfer and how receiving institutions can make their campuses more transfer friendly. 2|Page
