We just released our first batch of three episodes and they’re available to listen on all the podcast platforms and on our website.with an interview with AAUP president Irene Mulvey, who takes us through some of AAUP’s work this year as it relates to the pandemic, to academic freedom, and to the New Deal for Higher Education.
Episode two is a look at AAUP’s work on shared governance, with an examination of a special investigation of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on governance. We also discuss the results of our national shared governance survey, including data on the impact of the pandemic, the demographics of senate chairs and governance structures, and faculty roles in decision-making.
We round out this debut series with a podcast about the 2020–21 Annual Report on the Economic Status of the Profession, which also features a deeper dive into the issue of institutional debt.
We had some great guests for these shows, and we hope you’ll give it a listen! If you have topics you’d like to hear covered in future episodes, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org your ideas.
I hope you have a safe and happy December.
