Episode 34: True North (Dr. Mark Lanting)

You might be surprised to hear what the turning point was in Dr. Lanting’s life and why the community college mission has become his passion. He discusses the importance of being the same person in every facet of his life and how that serves him both personally and professionally, and we learn what a typical day looks like for an academic dean. Finally, we talk about his many travels around the globe.

Episode 33: Culture Shift (Darin Monroe)

Darin Monroe talks about his dual role as Athletic Director and Head Softball Coach and how striving for excellence is infused into every aspect of the athletics program, leading to unparalleled student-athlete success on the field, in the classroom, and in the community. In the spirit of competitiveness, we ask Darin which interview in his career has meant the most to him- this podcast or his appearance on SportsCenter.
