Kathryn Dodge, Ph.D. is founder of Dodge Advisory Group, LLC, focused on excellence in policy and practice in higher education. Her institutional engagements (domestic and global) center on initiatives that are systemic, strategic, and sustainable.

Dodge co-founded Radio Higher Ed, a national podcast that provides information and commentary on education policy issues and their broader implications.
