The theme for the spring semester, Innovation for Change, invites the campus community to think differently in understanding the intersection of social and environmental problems and brings attention to how the values of a liberal education provide a foundation for addressing these problems.

The series comprises public events, such as the February 11 lecture by Paul D. Miller '92, the composer, multimedia artist and writer best known under the persona, "DJ Spooky that Subliminal Kid," as well as conversations with invited guests and workshops.
