Keep it coming!
Great content with focus on current issues in higher education. Enjoyed the conversation with Northeastern president. Keep it coming!
The content is great and I would have rated this podcast 5 stars, but these two need to talk less about themselves! Do they really have to list every role they play in the intro? How about just the top two? They are a little enamored of themselves. It detracts from the content, which is great and important.
Thank U for Future U
I find this podcast to be smart, engaging and informative. I'm learning so much about the business of higher education and innovation in the field.
