Getting to Know the Tulsa Higher Education Consortium and Its Transfer Project

logo_consortium.png
Aired on Tuesday, August 17th.

On this edition of ST, we learn about the Tulsa Higher Education Consortium, which is, per its website, a "multi-institutional collaborative effort to meaningfully improve students' journeys toward degree completion, professional independence, and mobility." Our guest is Dr. Laura Latta, the executive director of the THEC. Seven Tulsa-area higher-education institutions, as Dr. Latta tells us, comprise this consortium, which was founded in 2018: TCC, OSU-Tulsa, Northeastern State University, OU-Tulsa, Rogers State University, Langston University, and TU. In particular, we chat with Dr. Latta about the consortium's Transfer Project, which aims to (again per the THEC website) "increase the number of students who attain post-secondary credentials in northeastern Oklahoma through enhanced transfer-student success."

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
