College & Career Transitions Research Team

The College & Career Transitions Research Team was formed in the spring of 2016 and is co-led by Dr. Chloe Lancaster, Assistant Professor of School Counseling, and Dr. Melissa Fickling, Assistant Professor of Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Research team members include master's and doctoral level students who share interests in the topics of work, mental health, college completion, high school to college transition, and academic success. Current projects include an examination into the psychological and academic factors related to student retention in college, the efficacy of academic coaching interventions, and the barriers and supports to adult (nontraditional student) college degree completion.
