Heat Policy & Governance

We partner with interdisciplinary faculty from across campus and community members to address extreme heat through a lens of equity and access.

As the climate continues to evolve,  we have seen an increase in extreme weather events, including historic heat waves and droughts. Research shows that underrepresented and poorer communities are feeling these effects significantly more than their wealthier counterparts, and those disparities only prove to be increasing. We work directly with practitioners to mitigate extreme heat and increase resilience efforts while building their capacity to adapt through training and outreach.
