About the Program
Climate change is an existential threat faced by our society. Addressing climate change and building resilience and sustainability requires joint effort and interdisciplinary, innovative collaboration between researchers, educators, policymakers, and the private sector. Baruch, specifically, and with its partners across CUNY, is strategically located in New York City, the world’s financial capital and tech hub, and home to more than 18 million people. Most Baruch students will make their home in NYC. They will contribute as the economic and leadership engine that will maintain NYC’s vitality.
Baruch’s three schools—Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs, Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, and Zicklin School of Business—make the College uniquely positioned to become:
- The CUNY climate resiliency and innovation research hub
- A global leader in interdisciplinary climate change and sustainability business and policy innovation
- A catalyst for a well-prepared NYC-based workforce ready to take on the opportunities of a transition to a decarbonized economy, and the challenges of climate impacts resilience.
Thanks to the Zicklin School of Business for its financial support of this program.
