Climate Change Speaker Series #3

November 11, 2020
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The 2020-2021 inaugural Climate Change Program Speaker series is excited to feature an outstanding lineup of academics, authors and community practitioners with expertise in climate change and its impacts. Our goal for the series is to bring diverse voices onto campus that help to connect faculty from across disciplines, expose students to new perspectives, increase attention to climate change, and leave audience members feeling empowered as problem solvers. Unless otherwise noted, each program is free of charge and open to the public.

All events will be on Zoom unless otherwise noted. Registration buttons will be added on a rolling basis. For more information, contact Alex Morales-Heil at
