The aim of the Climate Change SIG is to enhance the community’s awareness of both the impacts (environmental, economic, and social) of climate change and strategies to mitigate and adapt to these impacts. To this end, we coordinate with other campus organizations to explore the climatic impact of a broad swath of environmental issues. We sponsor guest speakers on campus, organize informal dinners for students to meet with climate professionals, and provide a general forum for climate-related news and discussion. We also provide organizational and financial support for students to attend relevant international conferences and events, such as the annual UNFCCC Conference of the Parties.
