382: Dismantling Anti-Intellectualism - with Dr. DeRionne Pollard, President of Nevada State College


We welcome YOU back to America's leading higher education podcast, The EdUp Experience!

It’s YOUR time to #EdUp

In this episode, President Series #132, YOUR guest is Dr. DeRionne Pollard, President of Nevada State College, YOUR host is Dr. Joe Sallustio, aka, THE Voice of Education, & YOUR special guest co-host is Dr. Bill Pepicello!

You don't want to miss this conversation with DeRionne.  She offers one of the most compelling arguments FOR the value of higher education that we have heard.  She talks about serving students to create opportunity, and for first-gen students, a pathway to change circumstances and create generational wealth.  DeRionne talks about being "high-touch, and high-tech" for students who have increased expectations.  She doubles down on the importance of higher education as a public good rather than as a commodity.  

Dr. DeRionne Pollard is the current president of Nevada State College (NSC). She was appointed by the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) Board of Regents in April to lead NSC, a four-year public comprehensive institution. NSC is one of the fastest-growing colleges in the country and is designated as a Minority Serving Institute (MSI), Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) and Asian American Native American Pacific Islander Institution (AANAPI). NSC also advances phenomenal teaching and superb student support to expand and diversify an educated workforce, thereby protecting social justice and economic mobility. Dr. Pollard began her tenure at NSC on Aug. 16, 2021.
