MADE CLEAR program funds education initiatives on nine campuses

The Maryland and Delaware Climate Change Education, Assessment and Research (MADE CLEAR) program has awarded funding to nine programs with initiatives aimed at improving sustainable climate change education on participant campuses. The funding is an outcome of the MADE CLEAR Higher Education Summit held earlier this year. Each awardee received a $5,000 mini-grant to initiate a project.

“The MADE CLEAR team is excited to be able to support institutional development of higher education programming to improve climate literacy,” according to Jennifer Merrill, MADE CLEAR principal investigator (DE). “With these dynamic new programs, more students from a diverse suite of educational programs will be able to make the connections between their field of study and climate change impacts. These are critical skills for our young workforce to have at the ready when they graduate from our programs.”
