American Meteorological SocietySecond Nature is partnering in the coming months with the American Meteorological Society (AMS) on a 4-year project to promote the importance of basic climate science education at all colleges and universities, particularly those that are minority-serving and signatories of the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC).

This national network involves more than 670 colleges and universities who are committed to eliminating net greenhouse gas emissions from campus operations by promoting the education and research needed for the rest of society to do the same,” explains Jim Brey, director of the AMS Education Program. “AMS and Second Nature will work together to demonstrate to current and potential MSI signatories how AMS Climate Studies introduces or enhances sustainability-focused curricula.”

The partnership will result in the implementation of the AMS Climate Studies course at 100 minority-serving institutions in the US at no cost to the institutions.
