Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Bruce Cole

Mona Charen, Michael Poliakoff and David Bruce Smith remember National Endowment for the Humanities Chair Bruce Cole

Bruce Cole, who passed away in January 2018, is most often remembered for his outstanding leadership at the National Endowment for the Humanities. Beyond that, he was a significant visionary scholar and professor who brought light into the humanities and arts. This podcast shares the highlights of a conversation between three leaders in higher education who knew Bruce, well.

Special guest, Mona Charon, senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, was joined by David Bruce Smith, president, Grateful American Foundation, and Michael Poliakoff, president of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA).
