Program on Climate Change


To create a strong sense of community among faculty and students interested in climate change. We do this by facilitating understanding and prediction of the earth’s climate and its interaction with human and natural systems. Through our activities we provide opportunities for faculty, staff and graduate students in climate-related fields to (1) interact across disciplinary boundaries and (2) broaden their applied and collaborative experience and skills.
