Terrific Conversation

The podcast was structured, organized and professionally. The questions were timely, meaningful, thoughtful, and relevant. I enjoyed the experience.


Great Educational Innovation

I have just listened “Episode 519”. I am impressed by a series of great educational innovation done by the University System in Texas 1, Attract high school graduates and help them to set up their goal for college graduation and well prepare them for that. 2, Open more online courses for satisfying different student body’s demands. 3, Open more short- term courses. So students can graduate quicker than usual with certain credential. For example, one only need to have some liberal arts credits and also a certificate in a specific field, and then he/she can graduate. And these college graduates pretty well meet the needs of labor market. 4, Support life-long learning pipeline by cultivating the culture of alumni’s loyalty to their alma mater. 5, In order to face the challenge of the quick increment of Hispanic population in Texas, the university system in Texas builds a whole lot of other infrastructure for new type of student service. 5, In order to face the challenge of the quick increment of Hispanic population in Texas, the university system in Texas builds a whole lot of other infrastructure for new type of student service. First, they launch a set of 20 research universities. The goal is to dramatically increase the pipeline of doctorin candidates in Texas for the Hispanic young people. Second, dramatically increases teaching faculties for college and university in the market place. So all the colleges and universities can work better for Texas different students' groups. 6, In their point of view, one important value of education is to make sure social & economic mobility. Sending colored poor minority young teenagers to the middle class is one of mission of common college education. Today in Amerca, entering middle class requires the credentials beyond high school. Therefore, the university system in Texas is doing great meet the ever change higher education in America.


Great conversation

Had a wonderful time with the EdUP team in my recent interview. Really insightful questions and a wonderful discussion on the challenges facing the post secondary and the K-12 worlds. Always fun to talk with thoughtful educators who are committed to helping find solutions.


Work for credits for one's continue education

In Episode 516, the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) helps working adults students' continual education in a highly efficient way. They allows adult students to earn credits from the enterprise that they are working and bring these credits to college for their pursue higher educational degree. So that they can do better job in their work field for the companies. This greatly benefits every side: adult students, enterprise and college. From long-term, it will greatly help American enterprises to improve the quality of workforce and reinforce the abilities and power of America's products competition in the world.


The Premier Higher Ed Podcast

Joe, Elvin, and the rest of the team are fabulous. They provide a valuable service to the higher education community and make their guests feel welcome and comfortable. The team asks hard-hitting questions but does it in an approachable manner, which allows the guest to answer transparently and provides the most value to the audience. I could not recommend this podcast more.


The Most Fun Conversation I've Had About Ed Research

The EdUp Experience always delivers important conversations around equity and access in higher education. Joe didn't shy away from the challenge of making a white paper-- "Research Priorities for Equitable Dual Enrollment Policy and Practice" --not only interesting and practical for the field, but also fun! Thanks for breaking down this issue for your listeners.


Substantive and Fun!

It was an efficient exploration into some of the thornier issues of higher Ed reform, but discussed in an approachable way.


Conversations that make you Better!

We had planned a conversation for last Spring that was postponed due to scheduling conflicts - in return the opportunity came at a time that was more forward facing for our institution. The energy and engagement with #EdUp helps to crystalize experiences that are useful to the leader, the process,, and the outcomes! Thanks for a fun and productive Podcast experience.


What a great connector in the space!

The EdUP team is professional, kind and positive-- which is, unto itself, a truly noteworthy accomplishment. On top of that, their presence in the space, along with their reputation and networks make them an invaluable resource. We feel truly fortunate that the EdUP team has helped us share our story and meet other education leaders with complementary stories. Thank you!


The EdUp Experience is Like No Other

Joe and Elvin are true transformers in higher education! The Ed Up Experience is an important solution to all things higher education. Thanks Joe and Elvin for your important and vital work!


As a Network of Mentors

I became aware of EdUp podcast after hearing a mentor's interview on the program. Since then I have listened to many of the episodes, and I find each of them has a at least one nugget that has given me insight to an issue critical in my role as president. In a way the EdUp podcast is an extensive mentoring network, and I encourage everyone to listen so that we can all collectively strengthen our sector. It has been a rewarding experience to be involved with EdUp, thank you.


Good interview

Before my appearance on the podcast, I did not know about EdUp. I appreciated and enjoyed the exchange that I had with both hosts. While making sure that I was comfortable, they did not hesitate to push me on various points, and as a result I expanded my thinking on several issues. I hope that these new perspectives came through—and I am eager to see comments from listeners.


So much fun!

This show was so much fun to be a part of! I had a great time laughing with Joe. He put me at ease right away! I felt really safe to be honest and thoughtful in my responses while also not taking myself too seriously! Ha! Wonderful experience and a great show!


In the Business of People

Great and thoughtful questions, and Joe's personality and clear passion for education made the experience fun and thought-provoking. It was great also being able to talk about education at Delta College with my counterpart-in-crime, Nick Nissley, President at Northwest Michigan.


Great experience - thoughtful questions and engaging conversation.

As an interviewee, enjoyed the thoughtful questions, and the resulting engaging conversation. Joe made it easy! I appreciate the breadth and depth of topics found on the EdUp Experience. Well done!


Great Experience

Having the opportunity to talk with Joe, to share, and to learn was a great experience. So many great things happening in our industry and this is a wonderful forum for showcasing them.


Great podcast experience

I had a great experience on this podcast with Joe and Elvin. They asked great questions and made us all feel comfortable. It was great fun and and a wonderful conversation.


A Great Listen

I was introduced to this podcast at a conference as a guest speaker. Since then I have enjoyed listening and following the different topics in higher ed that Joe covers. An easy recommend for any higher education professional


So much fun!

Thank you so much for the opportunity to shed some light on the genuine student stories that we face in the community college world! Great to meet you at Anthology 22 in Orlando! You’ve definitely gained a new listener and I can’t wait to tune in with all the content dedicated to trends and topics in education!


Had a Blast!

Joe and Elvin were fun and engaging, making the interview a smooth and exciting experience, but their knowledge of education and passion for what they are doing was the icing on the cake of the whole experience! Will be a lifelong listener now!


Absolute blast

This podcast experience was so easy, smooth, welcoming and fun! Elvin and Joe are incredible hosts and the knowledge they have in the industry made our time together effortless.


Fun and Informative

I joined Joe to talk about a new student debt initiative called studentdebtsmarter.org, launched by the nonpartisan Pete G. Peterson Foundation. It was a great conversation. He “got” the importance of what the initiative is trying to accomplish in terms of transparency and helping students better understand what it means to borrow to finance their college and how to keep their borrowing to affordable levels. He’s a great advocate for higher education but also isn’t afraid to tackle key issues head-on, such as rising college costs. He’s truly dedicated to helping everyone in the higher ed ecosystem understand the challenges. The kind of candid dialogue he brings to his podcasts will help build consensus solutions. My conversation with him was lively, insightful, entertaining and fun. Thank you Joe for all that you do to keep your listeners up-to-date and informed on everything higher ed.


453: Classroom Technology

I truly enjoyed our conversation with Dr. Joe Sallustio about classroom technology. Joe is very engaging and knowledgeable in all things in education. Classroom technology is a never ending conversation in how to improve & enhance student learning achievement. Thank you EdUp!!! Until next time.


Great Experience as Interviewee - great discussion

I've never had such an enjoyable experience on a podcast before. Great conversation with wide-ranging education topics and great questions. Thank you for hosting me.


College Transparency Act

The show provided a comprehensive, non-jargon-laden, and at times even light-hearted account of why the College Transparency Act is needed NOW to improve U.S. higher education, highlighting the transformative effect that comprehensive student data would have on postsecondary education decision-making, by students, institutions and policymakers. The broadcast underscored the shortcomings of the current patchwork data system, and how that can be changed to create more accountability and rational decision-making throughout higher education.


Wonderful Experience

I had a great time as a guest on this podcast! I really like the fun, informal approach that Joe takes, and the topics we covered were on point with what I believe listeners will be interested in.


A dynamic, timely, and relevant venue to discuss key higher education issues

EdUp is the most comprehensive podcast in the U.S. and abroad enabling meaningful discussions on key issues being faced by colleges and universities. It is an amazing source of information and inspiration for those working in higher education either in academia or in administration. Congrats to the EdUp team for this great effort in benefit of higher education not only in U.S. but globally, as I was able to witness during the active and very relevant participation of the EdUp team at the recent World Innovation Summit on Education, hosted by Qatar Foundation in Doha.


A Mentoring Campus

Great experience - the questions and thoughtful dialogue was most enjoyable. If you get an invited, take advantage of the opportunity. You will not regret it!

Thank you for making a podcast that's not only informative, but fun! I had a great time being a guest and truly enjoyed how Joe makes the conversation easy and entertaining with his timely sound effects! Thank you to the EdUp team for providing a space that presents important topics in an upbeat way.
