The National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students has honored Dewey Knight, associate director of the University of Mississippi’s Center for Student Success and First-Year Experience, with its Bonita C. Jacobs Transfer Champion Rising Star Award.

The award recognizes individuals who avidly contribute to the success of students who transfer from community colleges or other institutions of higher learning.

“Dewey cares about each and every student,” said Kyle Ellis, director of the Center for Student Success and First-Year Experience. “Dewey played a significant role in establishing new services and programs for our entering freshmen and transfer students.”

Knight participates in the development of transfer student programs, initiatives and courses, and works to find new ways to help transfer students thrive on campus.

“I am both humbled and honored to receive this award from the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students,” Knight said. “I accept it on behalf of my colleagues at the University of Mississippi, both faculty and staff, in recognition of the multiple initiatives we have developed and provide to ensure transfer students succeed and enjoy the most positive undergraduate experience available in higher education today.”

Knight recently co-chaired the Transfer Student Task Force, developed EDHE courses to aid transfer students in their transition to the university and supported a transfer student mentor program.

“Dewey Knight is a true advocate for transfer students on our campus,” Ellis said. “Transfer students, as well as the entire University of Mississippi community, have benefited from Dewey’s commitment to student success.”
