Earlier this week, the University of Maine Graduate and Professional Center (Maine Center), launched a new podcast, “The Greater Good.” Carrie Wilshusen, Associate Dean for Admissions at Maine Law, is the host of the podcast which is devoted to covering complex and emerging issues in law, business, and policy.
Associate Dean Wilshusen graduated with honors from Maine Law in 2007. After serving as a law clerk, she entered private practice working with at-risk children and adolescents as well as serving as executive coordinator for Maine’s Access to Justice Commission. She returned to Maine Law in her current role in 2014.
The “Greater Good” podcast features Maine Center-affiliated students, alumni, faculty, and outside guests. Each week guests explore how these three fields contribute to the greater good of the state of Maine and the nation as a whole. Early episodes cover a range of topics including information privacy, rural health, the evolution of the MBA degree, Maine Law’s Refugee and Human Rights Clinic work, and a recent faculty trip to Greenland.
New podcast episodes will be posted every Tuesday in the fall semester. You can listen on the Maine Center’s website, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you listen to podcasts. You can also follow the podcast on Twitter @greatergoodpod.
The Greater Good is produced by the University of Maine Graduate and Professional Center and recorded at the WMPG station on the University of Southern Maine campus in Portland. The Maine Center is a consortium of graduate programs that prepares current and future leaders to solve our state and our nation’s most pressing challenges. Consortium partners include: University of Maine School of Law, Muskie School of Public Service at the University of Southern Maine, University of Maine Graduate School of Business, and the Cutler Institute for Health and Social Policy at the Muskie School.
