During the week of March 29 - April 2, 2021, the University of West Georgia took over "The Academic Minute," a collaborative program from WAMC public radio in Albany, New York, and the Association of American Colleges & Universities. "The Academic Minute" is a daily module featuring researchers from colleges and universities around the world, keeping listeners abreast of what’s new and exciting in the academy.
