Susan Hockfield Inauguration (May 6, 2005)

When Dr. Susan Hockfield was inaugurated as the 16th president of MIT, she used the historic moment to announce another first for MIT: a new initiative on energy and the environment. Established in September, 2006, the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) is an Institute-wide initiative designed to help transform the global energy system to meet the needs of the future. In 2009, when President Barack Obama visited MIT to deliver remarks on "American leadership in clean energy," he applauded the work of MITEI. View the entire inauguration ceremony at the From the Vault collection on TechTV.
