As an alumna of The New School University (1999), I attended their annual reunion at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center on Saturday April 16, 2011.

The university’s new president, Dr. David E. Van Zandt, moderated a panel entitled “The Role of Higher Education in Innovation,” which consisted of academic leaders representing The New School for Social Research Milano, The New School for Management and Urban Policy, and The New School for General Studies.

President Van Zandt led a discussion with Executive Dean David Scobey, Dr. Vyjayanthi Rao, assistant professor of anthropology, and Dr. John Clinton, associate professor of environmental policy and sustainability management, about the vital role higher education plays in stimulating social change. The New School is at the forefront of these efforts. The main topics included Professor Clinton's work on “EmPowerhouse,” the Parsons/Milano entry in the Solar Decathlon, and Professor Rao's work in urban density in Mumbai.

The panel, interactive session, and reception reconnected the attendees with The New School and revitalized relationships. More importantly, through the panel and discussion, the attendees were brought up to date with challenging ongoing projects such as Dr. Rao's anthropological research, with its visual components on the highly populated city of Mumbai, and Dr. Clinton's presentation of his multilevel team project, EmPowerhouse, for the 2011 Solar Decathlon. Following the panel, I approached Dr. Clinton and proposed an interview for The Light Millennium TV based on his presentation, which offered hope and a new vision. He was very supportive, and said he would be happy to be interviewed. We are honored to present this exclusive interview with Dr. John Clinton both as on line and as video. On behalf of The Light Millennium and The Light Millennium TV-LMTV, I am grateful for his collaboration and support. Bircan Ünver
