Smithsonian sets major changes

September 22, 2009|Associated Press

New centers at the Smithsonian Institution will focus on exploring the universe and climate change on Earth, world cultures and the American experience under a new plan approved Monday.

Smithsonian Secretary Wayne Clough said the four centers around those priorities would be designed to help scientists and curators foster new research. The changes approved by the Smithsonian Board of Regents will bring a new era to the 163-year-old complex, he said, vowing to break down traditional barriers between various scientific and artistic disciplines to encourage more innovation and broader work with schools and colleges.

The plan calls for an increase of 16% to 32% in revenue to pay for new priorities.
