New Student Network Initiative


New Student Networks (NSN) provide additional support for students with unique transitional needs who self-identify with one of the offered transition networks.


  1. Build community around each of the identity groups
  2. Socially establish a greater community that reflects all identities
  3. Assist in successful transitions for academic and social success:
    1. Discuss expectations and norms that are unique to the UW Bothell culture
    2. Refer new students to campus departments, offices, clubs, and organizations
    3. Produce comprehensive resource pages that will be accessible on the OTP website and at Network events

Main Goals:

  1. Provide more programs and information for underrepresented transitioning students
  2. Support new students throughout their first year
  3. Assess how OTP contributes to retention efforts of incoming students
  4. Better respond to the demands and needs of UWB’s invisible identities
  5. Connect students with fellow peers whom they can relate to and connect with in their transition to UW Bothell

Additional Networks:

Orientation & Transition Programs recognizes that there are many identities that have a unique transition, including identities that are not currently supported by a Network. Each year, Orientation & Transition Programs intends to add additional networks. If you would like to suggest a network, please email us at
