An ACE Task Force of college and university presidents and chancellors released a report last month offering recommendations on reimagining policies on transfer of college credit. Anne Holton, co-chair of the task force and a professor at George Mason University, and task force member Anne Kress, president of Northern Virginia Community College, visit the podcast to talk about the report, best practices for transfer of credit, and helping students succeed.
