In April 2021, the Northeastern Faculty Senate passed a resolution advancing the university’s commitment to demonstrating leadership in climate justice action. The initiative combines Northeastern’s strength in sustainability and resilience with the university’s engagement in racial and social justice to support climate change through community engagement.

The resolution resulted from the work of the Climate Justice Action Planning Committee that involved members of faculty and faculty affiliates within the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs. The committee includes Professors Ted Landsmark, Joan Fitzgerald, Auroop Ganguly, Rebecca Riccio, Brian Helmuth, Kelsey Pieper, and Jennie Stephens. The committee’s presentation to the faculty senate is available online.
