My “Go To” resource for all things Higher Ed

Michael and Jeff have excellent knowledge, depth and reach in higher-Ed and is a must listen to resource for anyone interested in the future of education.

As a College of Charleston Foundation Board Treasurer, I find myself sharing almost every episode with my fellow board members and executive staff. The podcast informs us in particular about the issues and challenges of our supported organization vastly improving our ability to communicate and collaborate.
