The concern is real; as is the opportunity and the responsibility. The question is whether the higher education sector can do its part to make the low-carbon economy viable. The 2020 Higher Education Climate Leadership Summit answered that question with a resounding “Yes! And here’s how.”
The summit attracted leaders from colleges and universities across the United States, including Ithaca College Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs La Jerne Terry Cornish, and Greg Lischke, IC’s director of Energy Management and Sustainability. Cornish and Lischke discussed Ithaca College’s path toward carbon neutrality in "Executing Your Plan to Zero Emissions," a presentation at the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education’s annual conference in February. President Shirley M. Collado also attended the summit.
