6: A Tale of Two Deans w/ Harvey Young and George Brown

Hiya! For the entire month of August, we’ll be highlighting experiences of diversity in the world of educational theatre- because after all, that first day of fall classes(virtual, hybrid, or otherwise) is right around the corner. To kick us off, we sit down with George Brown and Harvey Young, who are both deans of the fine and performing arts colleges at their respective universities. Listen as we discuss the realities of running a theatre program, including the deans' responsibilities to cultivate a safe place to learn and grow, faculty accountability, student empowerment, and more on this incredible(yeah, it's pretty damn tasty) episode of Fourth Wall: the podcast. Do you have an experience to share about diversity in higher education or any other topics we’ve discussed on 4W? We wanna read that shit!
