NYIT on the Academic Minute

May 28, 2018 - June 1, 2018

Five NYIT experts will be highlighted the week of May 28 to June 1 in a “takeover” of The Academic Minute, a daily segment on Northeast Public Radio that features research that contributes to serving the public good. The weekly takeover is a privilege that allows universities to feature a different expert each day within a week (Monday - Friday) and is also promoted to readers of Inside Higher Ed.
