Dear Evergreen Community: 

All students, staff and faculty are invited to join us for a community forum to discuss the new Center for Climate Action and Sustainability on March 3, 1:00-2:30 pm: 

We are thrilled with the news of a donation to support the launch of a Center for Climate Action and Sustainability on campus (see attached).

In response to this welcome news, an advisory committee–largely made up of the team of faculty who first developed a Climate Path and Climate Center proposal through New Academic Directions work in the summer of 2020–is helping us to think about the mission and scope of this Center.   

The advisory group would like to hear from you:

  • What do you would most want to study or teach about climate change?
  • What kind of job might you hope to get that would address climate change in some way?
  • What would a dream internship be?
  • What are some exciting community partnerships we could develop?

And much more! These conversations will help us determine the scope of the Center, draft a mission statement, and recruit a Center Director. We hope to launch the new Center in the next academic year.

We would like to hear from you! Please join us on March 3, 2021 at 1:00pm for this exciting discussion!
