Student Learning & Transitions

Student Learning & Transitions

The mission of the Student Learning and Transitions (SLT) department is to enhance the student experience through learning and development opportunities that support students’ academic and personal success.

What is SLT?

SLT is a group of services and programs aimed at helping students engage more effectively in their academic studies and student life at Nipissing University. We teach essential academic skills and study techniques that help students more effectively express their intelligence, apply their knowledge and communicate their ideas. We facilitate activities and programs to build a peer support network, an engaged Laker community, and support students throughout their multiple transitions in, through and out of their academic careers?
