College & University Success Stories

Colleges and universities are at the forefront of innovation. They are developing the new technologies and research needed to accelerate our transition to a low carbon economy. And they have another equally important role: cultivating the climate and energy leaders of the future.

“UConn is deeply committed to supporting environmental health and sustainability in any way we can. The decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement does not mean that we as a university should abdicate our own responsibility to do what we believe is best for our state, the nation, and the world with respect to our environment. We will steadfastly continue to do our part in contributing to global efforts to address climate change.”
