In this second part of our interview with Dr. Terrell Strayhorn, we discussed bridging the worlds of scholars and practitioners in higher education.

He shared his own undergraduate experiences and draws connections to his research today about college access and success. Dr. Strayhorn sheds light on the culture and expectations of publishing and research, as well as the slow adoption of research into practice. He encourages us to keep center the “three p’s” at the center, or the people, when we do this work on college campuses, which includes policymakers, parents, and the practitioners. Bringing our authentic self to this work and the importance of bringing love and light to the world and our role bringing out the light in other people, especially our students.
