We believe in research and education that makes a difference. We work with communities and stakeholders beyond academia to ensure that our work is informed by and has an impact on the real world.
We welcome local and regional community members to many of our events on campus and encourage our students to apply their knowledge through sustainability-related careers, organizations, and projects. Our faculty are active contributors to climate policy reports and planning, ranging from our own University’s Climate Action Plan, to Climate Ready Boston, Somerville Climate Forward, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Sixth Assessment Report. We also work with business leaders and investors to provide them with information about potential climate risks and opportunities in the private sector.
