On this week’s episode, we look at the growing ideological divide in college campuses and steps to counter it, and how businesses can cooperate with governments to achieve clean energy innovation.
Among America’s higher education institutions, intellectual diversity has diminished significantly over the past 25 years. Join us as we hear from Steven Hayward, a BPC fellow and senior resident scholar at UC Berkeley, on his five-part blog series on how to increase intellectual diversity in colleges. We also discuss the role that the private sector can play in the development, commercialization, and deployment of energy technology. Listen as Dan Reicher, the former assistant secretary of energy for energy efficiency and renewable energy at the Department of Energy, and BPC’s Addison Stark discuss obstacles and opportunities for clean energy innovation.
