The Climate Change Initiative (CCI) is a University Research Center that informs and supports evidence-based climate action. Our research, education, and outreach foster a transition to a sustainable, resilient, and equitable society.
Scientific research must be the foundation for informing society about ongoing climate change and its potential future impacts. We also recognize that climate change is more than a scientific problem with a technical solution. The CCI is committed to examining the physical, ecological, environmental, social, economic, historical, and political facets of climate change impact, mitigation, and adaptation.
The CCI is an award-winning University Center with more than 40 faculty members drawn from 22 academic departments.
The CCI was founded in 2010 when a group of faculty came together to share their research and raise awareness about climate change.
We invite you to engage with us to address one of the greatest challenges faced by humanity and to foster a successful transition to a low-carbon, climate-resilient society. You can get involved in many ways – from participating in one of our open events to partnering with us on one of our many projects or highlighting our shared goals by sponsoring our work.
