Resource: Higher Education’s Role in Adapting to a Changing Climate

By developing strategies with which society can adapt to current and future climate impacts, colleges and universities can serve as climate adaptation centers through community engagement, evaluation of and strategies to deal with climate risks, as well as by serving as impartial information sources.
