“To a Degree” podcast

Last week I had the pleasure of being a guest on the “To a Degree” podcast, sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Host Casey Green and I discussed the challenges — and joys — of leading a university at this critical time in higher education.

My segment below starts at the 45:42 mark, but I encourage you to also listen to the first two segments, featuring Ted Mitchell, president of the American Council on Education, and Margaret Spellings, president of the University of North Carolina System. You can access the entire podcast series here.
