About the Show
Hosted by Lougan Bishop, Higher Ed Social is a weekly podcast dedicated to those that work in higher education. In each episode, we dive into the lives and careers of people who help make colleges and universities work. So sit back, relax and get ready for some fun conversation.
Higher Ed Social was created by Jackie Vetrano and Lougan Bishop and is part of the ConnectEDU network, the first podcast network for higher education, which brings together brilliant minds in the higher ed space and breaks down silos.
