Transfer Partnership podcast

“We’re better together.” CCRI Director Dr. Lia Wetzstein, and Research Affiliate Dr. Theresa Ling Yeh, joined the Transfer Nation Talks podcast hosted by Executive Director Dr. Janet Marling of the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students (NISTS) on The Art of Transfer Partnerships. In this informative conversation, they discuss CCRI’s expertise and prior work with transfer partnerships, including why partnerships are important, common catalysts and barriers, and some strategies for making progress when partnership efforts get “stuck.” They also discuss how we are now leveraging this knowledge in the new project above, STEM Transfer Partnerships, to impact low-income STEM students and foster a culture of collaboration among institutions across Washington state.
