Abstract

In late 2019—prompted by the demands of students and other community members involved in Climate Strikes and resolutions from the Faculty and Staff Senates, Student Government Association, and Graduate Student Assembly—President Tim Sands and Senior Vice President Dwayne Pinkney established a Climate Action Commitment Working Group (WG) comprised of 26 faculty, students, staff, and community members. In announcing the creation of the WG, President Sands stated that: “climate change presents one of the world’s most pressing problems…and Virginia Tech has a duty to respond.” The Group was charged to assess the university’s progress in implementing the 2009/2013 VT Climate Action Commitment, compare our experience to peer institutions, and develop a new Commitment.
