CAP Academic Subcommittee

Our Mission

The Climate Action Plan Academic Subcommittee’s mission is to encourage strong research, education, and outreach programs to educate students, faculty, their broader communities, our elected officials, and other stakeholders about climate change mitigation and adaptation. With support from the University leadership and in dialog with the Climate Change Initiative  our goals are: to integrate climate change as a recurring and emphasized theme across the University curriculum; to strengthen faculty capacity for climate change education and research; to expand climate change-related collaborations with other UMass campuses and with regional needs; and to leverage synergies between the University’s emissions reductions activities and its academic mission.

Learn more about academic programs related to climate change and sustainability through the Climate Change Initiative website.
