From Carl Drummond, COAS Dean and Vistas and Viewpoints host:

Dean Carl DrummondMy purpose in launching the Vistas and Viewpoints podcasting effort is to provide the citizens of northeast Indiana with easily accessible information about the scholarship and research being conducted by faculty in IPFW’s College of Arts and Sciences. Amazing things are being discovered here, and I want everyone to know how vital and vibrant research is at IPFW.

The College of Arts and Sciences is the largest and most diverse academic unit on campus. Topics are drawn from the ongoing research of our faculty in the humanities, sciences, mathematics, and social sciences. I will bring to the listener a wide ranging and engaging set of topics.

Today's highly mobile and highly connected society allows us to provide relatively brief but content-rich intellectual experiences delivered in such a way as to be accessible to anyone with a curiosity for new knowledge. Podcasting allows us to provide content that is available on demand, is consumable through a broad range of delivery systems, and is subject to archiving so interested listeners can return to episodes they might have missed.
