Rutgers Camden


  • Build a culture of sustainability at Rutgers Camden that:
    • Integrates climate action into academics, life, and policy across campus
    • Embodies the core values expressed in the climate action plan
    • Is inclusive of all Camden students, faculty, and staff
  • Measure and communicate progress toward building a culture of sustainability at Rutgers Camden
  1. Recommend to the provost a series of teaching modules related to climate change and other environmental concerns that could be considered for incorporation into existing and potential courses.
  2. Suggest opportunities for engaging faculty (including those who are part of a sustainability hiring cluster) and students in civic engagement initiatives that address such matters as climate change, environmental justice, and other related topics – broadly and, more specifically, in our host city of Camden.
  3. Identify and propose strategies for reducing climate impacts resulting from the operations of the campus.
  4. Develop opportunities for Rutgers University–Camden to work toward the remediation of matters related to environmental justice and health equity in Camden and southern New Jersey, with an emphasis on matters related to the health of individuals, families, communities, and populations.
