Today in the News Media is a synopsis of some of the most prominent coverage of OSU people and programs. Inclusion of any item constitutes neither an endorsement nor a critique, but rather is intended only to make the OSU community aware of significant items in the media. Content appearing includes timely news and feature stories from broadcast, print and online sources. Occasionally, opinion pieces and first-person columns appearing in mainstream media outlets that are written by faculty members and pertain to their academic or professional expertise may be included based on their unique, informative value, timeliness and space constraints. It is not the policy of OSU Today to include Letters to the Editor. Occasionally, articles highlighted in OSU Today may either be subscription-only or behind a paywall if a maximum number of articles has been reached that month. Many subscription-only publications, like the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, can be accessed by anyone with an OSU email account through the search function on the OSU Libraries home page, which grants free access to many publications.

FYI Friday – Supporting Transfer Student Success: Five Key Practices. Transfer student success is essential for equitable outcomes in courses, programs and institutions. More than ever, we must be ready to support students who are navigating the often complex and challenging transfer transition. "Supporting Transfer Student Success: Five Key Practices" is designed to not ask faculty and staff to add another “obligation” to an already full workload. Rather, the hope is to examine current methods with an eye toward identifying some possible new approaches, amplifying effective strategies and abandoning attitudes and behaviors that result in student disengagement. Through this session you will be asked to reflect on your own awareness and knowledge of transfer students, learn who our OSU transfer students are and collaborate to improve the ways in which our transfer students feel that OSU cares deeply about their success. Part of the Fall 2021 FYI Friday series; Friday, Oct. 15, 9:30-11 a.m. via Zoom. Registration required.
