In July 2020, Columbia University announced the creation of a new Climate School to address the environmental and public health challenges of climate change. The first new school in 25 years at the University, it will draw upon the University's current research centers and programs. In response, undergraduates at Columbia formed the Tricentennial Project, a group focused on exploring and modeling what undergraduates want from a climate school, and communicating with faculty and administration. Come listen to student input and administrative responses in this interactive discussion about the formation of this new school.
