ABOUT THE CLIMATE CHAMPIONS
UC faculty members are leading the shift to sustainability and climate neutrality.
UC President Janet Napolitano draws upon faculty expertise from across the ten campus system through the Faculty Engagement and Education Working Group and the Applied Research Working Group of the UC Global Climate Leadership Council.
The Applied Research Work Group is co-chaired by Sandra Brown, the vice chancellor of research of UCSD, David Auston, Associate Director of the Center for Energy Efficient Materials at UC Santa Barbara.
The Faculty Engagement and Education Working Group is co-chaired by Tom Peterson, provost and executive vice chancellor at UC Merced, and Abby Reyes, director of the Sustainability Initiative at UC Irvine. Find out more about the Faculty Engagement and Education Working Group.
