University Climate Change Coalition - The University of Arizona 

In December 2018, the University of Arizona joined the University Climate Change Coalition (UC3)—19 leading North American research institutions, including the University of California system, Arizona State University, and many more—all working together to expand our commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and working with community partners to encourage climate-related resilience. Providing leadership on these issues is critical to our community, our economy, and to our students’ success both now and after they graduate.

The long-term goal of UC3 is to make existing UA resilience activities more visible and to provide an opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to engage with the community through these efforts. 

On May 23, 2019, the University took its first step in meeting its commitments as part of UC3 by organizing an on-campus forum for faculty and staff. This forum, hosted by the Institute of the Environment and the Office of Sustainability, was a brainstorming session to develop ideas for ongoing engagement between the University and local community leaders, businesses, and other stakeholders. You can access the full meeting and various presentations here

Ideas generated at this initial event will be shared with community leaders in September 2019 to gauge their interest and to lay the foundation for a more collaborative discussion and partnership moving forward.
