Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
This is an inspiring, engrossing tale of one man's odyssey from physics professor and college president to citizen diplomat, searching for "a better game than war." Fresh, candid and compassionate, he challenges us all in new ways to find our passion and respond to it, to think about our values and the nature of change and risk. He advocates a creative and sensitive approach to the education of young people, offering inspiring examples from his own experience and hope for world peace through such an approach.

Robert Fuller, Ph.D. is a physicist and former president of Oberlin College. He has consulted with Indira Gandhi, met with Jimmy Carter regarding the President's Commission on World Hunger, and worked to defuse the Cold War in Russia when it was known as the USSR. As Fuller reflected on his career he realized that he had been, at different times in his life, a somebody and a nobody. His periodic sojourns into “Nobodyland” led him to identify rankism - the abuse of the power inherent in rank - and ultimately to write the book Somebodies and Nobodies: Overcoming the Abuse of Rank. He has become a recognized leader of the dignity movement to overcome rankism and keynoted a Dignity for All conference hosted by the President of Bangladesh. His many other accomplishments include co-authoring the text book Mathematics of Classical and Quantum Physics.
