308: Changing Hearts & Minds - with Dr. José Luis Cruz Rivera, President, Northern Arizona University

Welcome back to America's leading higher education podcast, The EdUp Experience!  In this episode, President Series #99, your guest is Dr. José Luis Cruz Rivera, President at Northern Arizona University, & your sponsor is Unmudl!

From Provost of the CUNY system to President of Northern Arizona University, a public research institution, Jose Luis continues his passion of changing hearts and minds.  He wants to bring equity to education and it’s the equity angle that he believes will separate NAU from other institutions in Arizona.  Make no mistake, he understands the competitiveness of the Arizona and online marketplace, however, he believes that when hearts and minds are aligned, growth will occur!

José Luis Cruz Rivera began his tenure as the 17th President of Northern Arizona University (NAU) on June 14, 2021.  Prior to joining NAU, Dr. Cruz Rivera served as President of Lehman College of The City University of New York and as Executive Vice Chancellor and University Provost of the 25-campus system. During his tenure at CUNY, Lehman enhanced its national reputation as an engine of social mobility and the Central Office of Academic Affairs registered important accomplishments on behalf of the University’s more than 20,000 faculty members, 26,000 professional staff and 500,000 students and learners.
