GPSG Climate Crisis Committee

The Climate Crisis Committee (CCC) at GPSG is tasked with responding to and advocating for environmentally focused issues that impact Duke’s graduate and professional student population. During the 2021 – 2022 academic year, the Committee focused on issues like divestment from fossil fuels, environmental justice, waste management, and equitable transportation. Collaboration is a large part of our work, and we are connected with multiple other GPSG Committees, including Parking and Transportation, External Advocacy, and DEI. Climate Crisis Committee’s work is also not limited to Duke’s campus, with ongoing efforts to connect with UNC Chapel Hill, NC State, the Durham community, and other universities around the United States. The Committee welcomes all Duke Graduate and Professional students regardless of experience level with government, advocacy, or climate issues.
