Come Join the Announcement of the Duke Climate Commitment

Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions
Come Join the Announcement of the Duke Climate Commitment

Get connected with what’s happening in the Duke climate community during special events held Sept. 29–30.

The Duke Climate Commitment will be formally announced on Sept. 29 and builds on the university’s longstanding leadership in climate, energy and sustainability to educate a new generation of climate-fluent innovators and create equitable solutions for all.

During a two-day event series on Sept. 29–30, participants can hear more from members of the Duke community already engaged in this work and find out how they can get involved. The events will begin with remarks from Duke President Vincent Price on Duke’s climate vision. The effort unites the university’s education, research, operations and public service missions to engage the entire community in the pursuit of climate change solutions.

“It is a wonderful and important moment for our university,” President Price said. “Across every aspect of our mission, we are deepening our commitment to addressing climate change, one of the most critical challenges of our times.”

“Duke has the talent, the resources, the know-how and the moral obligation as the second largest private employer in North Carolina to work with the younger generation to chart a new course,” said Toddi Steelman, Stanback Dean of Duke’s Nicholas School of the Environment. “This commitment is core to our mission, and we're committed to acting with purpose to address the climate crisis.”
