Episode 16: Craig Boise

As the Chief Strategy Officer for Noodle, Lee Bradshaw meets – you guessed it – a lot of interesting people in higher ed. In Noodle’s debut podcast, Bradshaw speaks with leaders from every facet of higher education to tease out their stories and learn about how they’re moving and shaking an industry that notoriously values tradition.

Lee is joined by the Dean of Syracuse University College of Law, Craig Boise. Craig is quite possibly the most interesting person in the world, not just higher education. Prior to becoming a dean, Craig grew up working on a farm, was a SWAT team sniper, is a classically trained pianist, and an avid sailor. The two talk through all of Craig’s past and how those experiences have helped him be a better dean. Craig details what it was like building one of the first Online JD programs in the country at Syracuse, and a Risk Free JD program at Cleveland State University. He also touches on how he got faculty on board to teach online, and what he’s thinking about in the higher education space moving forward.
