In this episode of Transfer Nation Talks, we spotlight Emily Tichenor, winner of the NISTS 2023 Transfer Champion Rising Star award! Emily was nominated in recognition of her work with University Transfer at Tulsa Community College, in which she served as the founding director. Pulling from her roots as a librarian, Emily implements principles of equitable access to information and community collaboration across her work in transfer: from her involvement in the Tulsa Transfer Project and Tulsa Higher Ed Consortium to her current role as a program manager at Ithaka S+R, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to increasing access to higher education and improving student outcomes.

She supports the Articulation of Credit Transfer (ACT) Project, a collaboration with the City University of New York (CUNY) that includes the groundbreaking transfer information tool Transfer Explorer (T-Rex). The ACT Project, which is currently expanding inside and outside of New York, seeks to increase the visibility of and number of transfer course equivalencies and to help students count more of their credits toward their degree programs.

During her time at TCC, she served as co-lead for the Tulsa Transfer Project and a committee chair for the Tulsa Higher Education Task Force both of which sought to improve collaborative relationships between seven higher education institutions in the Tulsa region and improve outcomes for transfer students. She served as a Board Member and Chair of the Strategy Oversight Committee for the Tulsa Higher Education Consortium.
