What, exactly, is causing Earth's climate to change, and how do we know? What difference will a few degrees more or less in temperature, or a little more rain or sunshine, make in our own lives? What will an altered climate mean to our students? What are we doing, and what more can we do, to prevent, minimize, and adapt to these changes and their effects?

Such questions are everybody's business. Indeed, they are driving research and teaching all over Colorado State University: we are a key site for such research. But those of us who are concerned about climate change do not necessarily know each other, and the knowledge our research is producing is not necessarily making its way to our students, or off campus to the larger community.

Changing Climates @ Colorado State is addressing these challenges. We are building a network of faculty and researchers from every CSU college whose interests and research coalesce around climate change. We are educating each other and ourselves. We are helping faculty across the curriculum add climate content to their courses. And we are offering programs on on the many aspects of climate change to the student body and the public.

Fall 2007 kicked off the CC@CSU program with a series of seminars for faculty and staff. During the 2008-09 school year, we will offer a similar series for larger audiences.

Please join our network if you are interested. If you'd like help adding climate materials to any courses you teach, contact SueEllen Campbell or John Calderazzo, who will put you in touch with the right people. And look around our website for additional information.
