The Climate Change Initiative (CCI) engages in climate change and sustainability-related education in a number of capacities locally and nationally. Our faculty teach, guide student research, and coordinate service learning projects across all six UMass Lowell colleges. See “Academics at UML” to learn more about our sustainability minors and course offerings.

The CCI collaborates with Climate Interactive to develop, research, and disseminate engaging role-play simulations to students across the US and globe. See “Simulations” to learn more about the World Climate and Climate Action Simulations for middle, high school, undergraduate, and graduate students.

See “Classroom Modules” for faculty and K-12 educator-generated modules and “Summer Professional Development” to learn about how our faculty support K-12 educators to earn Professional Development Points for building their climate literacy capacities.
