Times Higher Education Interviews Associate Professor of Classics Norman Sandridge

Norman Sandridge

The Times Higher Education recently interviewed Associate Professor Norman Sandridge, in the Classics Department, to discuss "his conservative upbringing, his move from science to the humanities and the need for better leadership" (-Paul Basken).

 

Paul Basken, Times Higher Education, sat down with Associate Professor Norman Sandridge, from Howard University's Classics Department, to gain more knowledge about who he is, what he does and his role at the Mecca.

"How did that academic transition go?

And I didn’t think science and technology was going to fix all that.
