The Meredith Minute


Lifelong learners never stop being curious.

That’s why we developed The Meredith Minute – a series of short videos and essays featuring Meredith College faculty explaining a topic within their area of expertise. From demystifying the principle of compounding to explaining why we can’t eradicate diseases like ebola and the flu, each episode will clarify one aspect of our world – one minute at a time.
