Show Notes

In this episode, Emily Kittrell from NISTS chats with Dr. Drew Koch, CEO of the John N. Gardner Institute for Excellence in Higher Education and co-editor of the recent book, The Transfer Experience. Instead of diving into the specifics of any one project, their conversation offers a broad overview of important lessons learned in nearly 25 years of Gardner Institute's transfer-focused work, including the importance of socially just design, evidence-based improvement plans, and finding a community to support and further your transfer advocacy efforts.
