Episode 35: Community Colleges in…New Zealand

In this episode of In The Know, ACCT director of GISS and Special Projects Norma Goldstein talks with Julia Kennedy, who works in the funding agency for New Zealand’s Tertiary Education Commission—in this case, "tertiary education" is synonymous with post-secondary education in the United States. New Zealand may seem like world away, you’ll find that there are a lot of similarities between U.S. and Kiwi systems, and a lot to learn.
