WWUH Launches New Radio Show Highlighting Faculty Research
WWUH Radio and the University of Hartford are launching a weekly show to highlight the depth and breadth of research topics that the University’s faculty members are exploring.
“Beyond the Classroom,” which will feature interviews with University faculty and staff on their research endeavors, begins airing today (Thursday, Sept. 5), and can be heard every Thursday at 12 noon on WWUH Radio (91.3 FM and www.wwuh.org) and its affiliates.
In addition, podcasts of the show will be available for download and additional listening at www.hartford.edu/news.
The show is hosted by David Schonfeld and produced locally by WWUH Radio. In this weekly series, Schonfeld will talk with members of the faculty and staff of the University of Hartford about their wide-ranging research activities and about their work on behalf of the University and the community-at-large.

The next installment of "Beyond the Classroom," scheduled to air on Thursday, Sept. 12, at noon, will feature an interview with Vice President for Student Affairs Lee Peters and Senior Advisor to the President Susan Fitzgerald, who will offer helpful advice to current and prospective college students and their parents.
