It's a Different World with Creatives on Campus

It's a Different World with Creatives on Campus

By Brittanie Tea
Hosted by Brittanie Tea (affectionately known as The Creative Advocate), this podcast is an interview series that pays homage to the show responsible for pioneering an explosive number of black, millennial scholars, while exploring an emerging community (known as creatives).

The mission is two fold: On one hand, Brittanie Tea pushes the envelope on traditional teaching and learning practices among diverse student types, specifically the creative. On another, It's a Different World with Creatives on Campus lends space for adult-learners and graduates to unpack their educational narrative.
