"Paul Lingenfelter on federal unit records: Use of student unit records data to improve higher education outcomes" is the first of a three part series of podcasts dedicated to the discussion of a federal student unit record system. Lingenfelter is President Emeritus of State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO). Lingenfelter gives historical context to the early discussions about student unit records in 2002, the concept that informed the support of SHEEOs, and the implications of a Congressional moratorium on the student unit record system. While some entities such as Complete College America and the National Student Clearinghouse have made strides in overall data collection, there is still a gap in data with regard to student financial aid. Lingenfelter envisions a continued evolution toward a robust conversation regarding a federal student unit record system.

Interview facilitation, commentary and discussion presented by Kathryn Dodge, Alison Griffin, and Elise Scanlon of Radio Higher Ed.
