The UConn Climate Corps is a new undergraduate classroom and service learning opportunity that will begin formally in the Fall of the 2017-18 academic year. The program consists of a new 3 credit course (Fall semester) on the local impacts of climate change, followed by a 3 credit practicum (Spring semester) during which students work with Extension faculty to assist Connecticut communities in adapting to climate change.
The MAPP/Climate Corps program is a partnership of the following UConn entities:
- Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR)
- Connecticut Sea Grant
- Environmental Sciences Program
- Environmental Studies Program
- Environmental Engineering Program
MAPP/Climate Corps is funded by a three-year pilot program grant from the UConn Provost’s Office, in support of enhancing and elevating the five key goals of the University Academic Plan: Research & Scholarship, Undergraduate Education, Graduate Education, Teaching Effectiveness, and Public Engagement.
