Bryan Alexander will be on campus for the October 17-18 Climate Change Education Solutions Annual Summit. Join President Mantella and Provost Mili for a conversation about responding to the deepening climate crisis in the present and future. In this session we will explore how global warming can reshape the physical campus, from architecture to grounds, electrical power to food service. Alexander will share his findings on how research and teaching can transform to grapple with the global crisis and how colleges and universities can best anticipate and act in the face of civilization's greatest challenge.
