The Environmental Studies Program of CU Boulder is a community of scholars conducting research, teaching and service focused on the multiple dimensions of environmental change through integrating scientific understanding of human-environment interactions, practical responses to environmental problems, and the values that shape our decisions and behavior. Based on Mission Zero’s commitments to the courses ‘Developing Community Resilience to Climate Change’ and ‘Creating Climate Activists’ through compelling stories that catalyze engagement, we are excited to sponsor a new course to pilot in Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 called  ‘Confronting Environmental Racism’.
