On our August 1 program, the University of Maine's Elizabeth Allen and Kevin Kruger of NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education joined Inside Higher Ed Editor Scott Jaschik and the moderator Casey Green to analyze the firing of a major university's band director over allegations of hazing in his program -- and what it says that so many people rallied to his defense. And the University of Pennsylvania's Joni Finney joined us to discuss new data about the 31 million Americans who attended college but have no degree, and the implications for the national "college completion" agenda.
