The Gonzaga Experience is a weekly podcast sharing the traditions, the people, the mission, and the culture of Gonzaga University, reaching out especially to the members of our community who live some distance from the Spokane campus. Hosted by Dr. Michael Carey, Dean of Gonzaga’s Virtual Campus, the podcasts examine all aspects of the Gonzaga Experience: intellectual, social, and spiritual.
During the Fall Semester 2012, Dr. Carey interviews some of the key leaders at the University, including Dr. Thayne McCulloh (President), Fr. Frank Case, S.J. (Vice President for Mission), Dr. Patricia O’Connell Killen (Academic Vice President), and Dr. Sue Weitz (Vice President for Student Life).
