The Academic Minute

The Academic Minute features researchers from colleges and universities around the world, keeping listeners abreast of what’s new and exciting in the academy and of all the ways academic research contributes to solving the world’s toughest problems and to serving the public good.

Hosted by AAC&U President Dr. Lynn Pasquerella, The Academic Minute features a different professor each day, drawing experts from top colleges and universities from across the country.  You’ll enjoy updates on groundbreaking research and how that research helps us understand and solve the big problems that matter to us all.  Learn about how social media is transforming the workplace or the accidental discovery of chocolate, to name just a few.
