Welcome back to America’s leading higher education podcast! This is The EdUp Experience President Series Episode #77.  In this episode, sponsored by MDT Marketing, we welcome the American Public University System President, Dr. Wade Dyke.  Wade talks about what it's been like to take over the presidency of APUS in August of 2020, literally right in the middle of the pandemic.  He also discusses why APUS was at a competitive advantage pandemic-wise since it was built with the purpose to serve students.  Additionally, he opines on the rise of stackable credentials and their relationship to the traditional degree - and how the U.S. military perceives the value of a college degree in general.  Finally, Wade talks about the responsiveness of faculty at APUS to do what the military members, veterans, and public servants need in order to succeed in career and life.

John Farrar, Director of Education at Google, guests hosts!

Dr. Wade Dyke is President of APUS. He has a wealth of experience in education and business within private, non-profit and public enterprises. Before coming to APUS in August 2020, he served as CEO of Great Hearts Academies, a charter school network with some 19,000 students. Prior to that, Dr. Dyke was the president of Kaplan University (now known as Purdue Global University), where he worked for nine years in several jobs of ascending executive responsibility, including as Executive Vice President of Higher and Professional Education. He was instrumental in expanding online learning options for campus-based and online students while simultaneously enhancing policies and practices to promote growth and innovation throughout the Kaplan organization.
