Many courses related to climate change and sustainability are currently available at UMass Lowell.
Climate Change Initiative (CCI) Faculty engage undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral students through a diversity of course offerings, research opportunities, and community engagement. There are two CCI Faculty-led minors whose courses reach both undergraduate and graduate students: Environment and Society and Climate Change and Sustainability. In addition to the academic offerings directly related to CCI minors, CCI faculty also bring environmental sustainability content into their courses that contribute credit towards other majors and minors. Furthermore, one faculty member actively engages non-CCI faculty in the College of FAHSS to retrofit existing courses to explore environmental and climate themes. For these reasons, accurately quantifying the number of students directly or indirectly impacted by the CCI's work is a challenge, although it can be estimated that CCI faculty impact about one-third of UMass Lowell students annually.
