UW-Madison's Nicholas Hillman was recently featured on both WORT-89.9 FM and the podcast "No Jargon" speaking about an array of education and policy issues.

Hillman is an associate professor with the School of Education's Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis who researches higher education finance and policy. He also is a Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education faculty affiliate.

Hillman was a guest on-air for WORT community radio on Sept. 7 speaking about the Wisconsin state budget and the Joint Committee on Finance's faculty workload policy. 

Additionally, Hillman was featured on a podcast episode of "No Jargon" along with University of Pennsylvania's Laura Perna. The episode was titled "The Cost of College," and Hillman explains why student loan debt is such a huge issue today. 

"No Jargon" is produced by the Scholars Strategy Network and is committed to discussing politics, policy problems and social issues with top university scholars without using inaccessible jargon.
