Transfer Student Issue Petition

As students at Harvard College, we are concerned about the administration\'s recent decision to cut its average number of transfer student admits by half for the foreseeable future. We believe that transfer students provide the student body with a valuable infusion of fresh energy and new perspective, and have found them to be a vital part of the undergraduate community. Given the information available to us, it seems that the college would be ill advised to decrease its number of transfer students. With that said, we acknowledge that university officials may be privy to information that suggests otherwise. Therefore, we call on the administration to engage in a dialogue with all interested parties, perhaps in the form of a meeting attended by representatives of each, before proceeding further. Regardless of the college\'s ultimate number of transfer student admissions, we are also concerned that the college might cut its current advising and support services for transfer students in light of their reduced presence. We call on university officials to maintain these services so that transfer students continue to be effectively integrated into the Harvard community.
