Drexel Added to University Climate Change Coalition

Jump-starting a year of focused climate action, Drexel University was invited to join the University Climate Change Coalition (UC3), an alliance of more than 20 leading research universities working to accelerate the development of local climate solutions and build community resilience. UC3 is a distinguished program administered by Second Nature, an organization whose signature program Climate Leadership Network includes hundreds of American colleges and universities — as well as Drexel — committed to taking action on climate.

As an R1 research university, a national leader in civic engagement and anchor mission work, and a university with a growing portfolio of sustainability- and climate action-focused courses, projects, and relationships, Drexel’s values align heavily with those established by the network. The University’s climate collaborations began in earnest in 2010, when Drexel became part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration-funded Consortium for Climate Risks in the Urban Northeast (CCRUN). In 2016, the University became the North American Hub of the Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN), a consortium of over 1000 researchers, academics, government leaders and urban decision-makers collaborating globally on the unique challenges that climate change pose for cities. Through its inclusion in the UC3 coalition, Drexel’s network will be further expanded, allowing it to share resources, relationships and strategies with other member institutions of higher education in America, Canada and Mexico to more comprehensively tackle the climate crisis.
