Beginning January 3, Inside Higher Ed will carry The Academic Minute, the innovative series of daily 90-second commentaries by scholars speaking to the general public about research and other intellectual work taking place on college and university campuses across the country.
The feature was launched last July by WAMC/Northeast Public Radio of Albany in collaboration with Mount Holyoke. Each daily segment is introduced by President Lynn Pasquerella, and the series–which is distributed for free–has already inspired significant interest. To date, scholars from 52 colleges and universities have contributed commentaries, and The Academic Minute has been picked up by 26 radio stations. Newman’s Own Foundation is also supporting the series.
