Transfer Nation Talks
The Art of Transfer Partnerships
Show Notes

Partnerships are critical to every element of transfer, and intentionally crafted partnerships contribute to more equitable transfer processes, policies, and programs. While there are many variations on this theme, at NISTS we believe the ultimate partnership occurs between the student, their sending institution, and their receiving institution. Today’s episode highlights research from the Community College Research Initiatives (CCRI) at the University of Washington.
