We&rsquo;re excited to present Episode 1, a conversation with Michael Nixon, Esquire. Michael is the University&rsquo;s new <a href="https://www.andrews.edu/agenda/46301/" target="_blank">Vice President for Diversity &amp; Inclusion</a>. This conversation took place in late August 2017.</p> <p> <strong>PODCAST DESCRIPTION</strong></p> <p dir="ltr"> In Andrews Speaks we will explore stories brought to you by students, faculty, staff and campus guests. The topics will be in three broad categories consistent with the University&rsquo;s motto to &ldquo;Seek Knowledge. Affirm Faith. Change the World.&rdquo; Each episode will present a story centered on one of these three themes &ndash; (a) education and research, (b) spirituality and (c) engagement with our world. And naturally, most stories will have some intersectionality between categories.</p> <p dir="ltr"> We hope you&rsquo;ll subscribe to the podcast so you can engage with these stories. You can find Andrews Speaks on <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/andrews-speaks/id1297516124" target="_blank">iTunes</a>&nbsp;and <a href="http://stitcher.com/s?fid=154593&amp;refid=stpr" target="_blank">Stitcher</a>.
