The Official Podcast of NAGAP

In September 2018, NAGAP launched its first-ever podcast, The NAGAP Report. Changes in technology and requests from members prompted the NAGAP Education Committee to evaluate new opportunities to deliver information and best practices. The result is a medium that provides members with a convenient and free way to learn about the latest and greatest in graduate enrollment management and keep up on what's happening with NAGAP. Join hosts Marcus Hanscom and Lauren McGowan on this informative podcast.
