Welcome Transfer Students
Arrival Day: Tuesday, August 28The contents of these webpages are intended to help you familiarize yourself with Bard prior to your arrival on campus. If you have any remaining questions, don’t hesitate to call Timand Bates at 845-758-7454 or e-mail at email@example.com.
Transfer students have ample time to complete their Moderation. (See video on left for more on Moderation.) You will work closely with your faculty adviser to create a program of study that makes sense for you.
Meet the Dean of Transfer Students
Timand Bates '02, Assistant Dean of StudentsTimand, an alumnus of 2002, works with sophomores, juniors and seniors [last names Q-Z] offering social and academic support for students who may be struggling, are unsure about their program of study, want help with course selection, or have questions about how to improve their academic skills and time-management strategies. He coordinates programming and support for incoming transfer students and students who live off campus. Timand is also a field supervisor for the Bard MAT program, where he works with graduate students who are in pre-service training to become public school English teachers. When Timand is not supporting Bardians, his preferred use of time is exploring deep in the Catskills with his two fierce daughters, Alice and Hazel, and wife, Monica, who is also an educator. Despite Timand’s life-long commitment to literature and literacy, he is quite proud that his family’s first initials spell M.A.T.H. — an homage to the logic of love!
