The UW Program on Climate Change is an interdisciplinary program in climate science that strives to integrate education, research and outreach activities on campus. The goals are :
To create a strong sense of community among faculty and students interested in climate change.
To develop new courses that focus on the issues of climate change.
To create an intellectual atmosphere (through seminars, research, and special topic institutes) that establishes the UW as a place where important questions about how climate and our physical and human world interact are formulated and addressed.
To make the whole of the climate change effort at UW a powerful force in the training of future scientists and policy makers and in the understanding of past, present, and future climate.
