About the podcast

It started as a conversation over dinner. A group of higher education leaders began sharing stories on why they chose this challenging work and how their purpose guides them through. Now, a new podcast series invites listeners into these discussions. What’s Your Why?: Advice from Higher Education Leadership features a diverse group of bold and visionary leaders who all have something in common: they’ve found their “why” and it leads their work. 

Hosts Kimberly Holmes-Iverson and Victoria Cabal interview college and university presidents to learn more about what drives them, inspires them and guides them through challenges. Guests on the first season include L. Song Richardson from Colorado College, Ed Wingenbach from Hampshire College, Barbara Altmann from Franklin & Marshall College, Brian Casey from Colgate University and many more. 

Through this podcast, listeners will gain valuable insight into navigating difficult situations, building support on campus and advocating for students. Season one of What’s Your Why? will be released weekly on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. The podcast is co-sponsored by RW Jones Agency and Rankin Climate.
