 Apply to the inaugural class of the 2022 UCSD Climate Action Scholars

 

The Climate Action Scholars (CAS) Program is a 2-quarter, 12-unit course series out of the Social Sciences Division that will be offered this winter and spring (one 6-unit class each quarter).  The program welcomes students from all disciplines and backgrounds.  We can accommodate up 

to 25 students, and will accept applications until October 14th* or until we reach the registration limit.  If you are: 


  • concerned about the climate crisis and related issues of justice, equity, health and wellbeing, and 

  • interested in hands-on, collaborative, community-based learning, research, and action


then apply to be part of the Climate Action Scholars Program in winter and spring, 2023.  The class will meet on Friday mornings from 9 - 11:50am, with additional outings on occasional Friday afternoons and weekend days**.


The course series will be taught by Leslie R. Lewis, PhD, MPH, a faculty member in the USP Dept, anthropologist, and a veteran of experiential, integrative, community-engaged learning.  


Applications are due Friday, October 14, 2022.  For additional information or questions, contact Dr. Lewis at lrlewis@ucsd.edu. Scan QR code to open application
