The New American Colleges & Universities (NACU) today launched a new podcast “Connect, Collaborate, Champion!” available in the major podcast directories.

In the monthly podcast, NACU President Sean Creighton will be joined by experts and influencers from inside and outside of the consortium to discuss a variety of topics related to higher education. New episodes will be distributed by Buzzsprout.

The show’s first episode features Bob Bowman, director of risk management for The Wendy’s Company, talking with Creighton about risk management considerations as employees return to campus to work. Future episodes of “Connect, Collaborate, Champion!” will include conversations with Queens University of Charlotte President Dan Lugo; Daan Braveman, the recently retired president of Nazareth College; Scott Allen, the Reid Chair in Management of John Carroll University; and Corey Seemiller, a Wright State University professor and leading expert on Generation Z, among others.

“NACU is excited to enter the podcast world and collaborate on a digital broadcast that champions leaders and thinkers from our amazing campuses,” said Creighton. “We will also connect with other higher ed and industry guests on subjects that matter to our listeners.” 

Episodes of “Connect, Collaborate, Champion!” can be found on Buzzsprout and will be available everywhere podcasts are heard, including Apple Podcast and Spotify. 

The podcast is recorded in partnership with public radio station, 91.3 FM WYSO in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and made possible thanks to the support of the NACU campuses.

Founded in 1995, The New American Colleges and Universities is a national consortium of private, comprehensive institutions that integrate liberal arts, professional programs, and civic engagement to prepare their graduates for both careers and service as citizens in a global society. NACU campuses connect their students with their communities to ensure that students can apply classroom knowledge beyond the campus and understand their roles as responsible citizens. Because of their approach, they are often cited as models of the intentional integration of teaching and learning, scholarship, and service. NACU is a trusted network for these campuses and works to bring together progressive thinkers and innovative agents of change across higher education to share ideas and create unique opportunities for its campuses.
