The Santa Fe Institute will host a Community Lecture at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 31 at the James A. Little Theatre on the campus of the NM School For The Deaf, 1060 Cerrillos Road in Santa Fe.
The lecture, by Michael Crow, president of Arizona State University, is titled, “New Problems, New Partnerships: What Tomorrow’s University Must Be.” SFI Lectures are free and open to the public. Seating is limited.
In a relatively brief 150 years, human demands on natural systems have, perhaps irrevocably, brought us to an inflection point – the implications of which we do not yet fully understand. Meeting these new and increasingly complex challenges will require massive, coordinated efforts linking academia, industry, and governments.
Crow explains why conventional interdisciplinary approaches might not be sufficient, then suggests a new kind of academic enterprise that adapts to emerging complexities and enhances our ability to cope with tomorrow’s challenges.
The 2013 Santa Fe Institute Community Lecture Series is made possible through the support of Los Alamos National Bank.
The NMSD campus is under construction and the main gate into the campus will be closed for the month of July. There will be parking in the parking lot adjacent to the theater. NMSD security will be assisting in getting people to the appropriate parking areas.
