Episode 7: Hitting Reset on Transfer: How Higher Education and Policymakers Can Help More Transfer Students Earn Their Degree and Advance in Today’s Economy

In this special episode, podcast host and journalist Paul Fain is joined by three members of the Tackling Transfer advisory board: Sharon Morrissey of Virginia Community College System, Elena Quiroz-Livanis of Massachusetts Department of Higher Education, and Shirleatha Lee with the University of South Carolina Upstate to discuss efforts underway in their states and institutions for improving equitable outcomes for transfer students. The discussion centers on three policy issues featured in the recently released Transfer Reset report: financial aid, credit for prior learning, and data disaggregation. The episode concludes with a sense-making segment with JFF’s David Altstadt as well as HCM Strategists’ Lara Couturier.
