Rutgers Climate Task Force


The purpose of the task force is to develop Rutgers’ strategies for contributing to achieving global net-zero carbon dioxide emissions (“carbon neutrality”) and for enhancing the capacity of the university and the State of New Jersey to manage the risks of a changing climate (“climate resilience”). This includes not just strategies for Rutgers’ own operations, but also ways in which the university’s actions can advance the goal of climate-positive, equitable economic development in New Jersey and more broadly. 

Town Hall

Rutgers students, faculty, and staff are invited to join us from 6–8 p.m on November 11 and 12 for Envisioning Rutgers’ Climate Future: A Two-Night Town Hall Event. A panel of Task Force members will present key findings from the Phase 2 report and answer questions from the Rutgers community. Each meeting will conclude with a breakout visioning session based on the night’s theme.
