Senator Tom Carper at the Hub

Climate Hub summer students spoke with Senator Tom Carper about his legacy of environmental action, how to build bipartisan support through personal connections, and what it takes to be a leader.  We’ll post the full interview and his advice later this fall.


The Gerard J. Mangone Climate Change Science and Policy Hub is a central connecting point to bring together faculty, staff, students, government and non-government practitioners, and community partners to promote climate education, scholarship, and action. We build community to better understand and address our changing world. 

Course Improvement Grants - NOW OPEN

Funding is available to create new climate-related courses, to work on curiculum improvements, or to enhance existing courses by including more climate content or enhancing climate activities.

Welcome Back Climate Scholars

We have 33 new Climate Scholars joining us in Fall 2023. Our Scholars come from over 20 majors in all 7 colleges of the University. They’re doing cutting eddge research, working with community organizations to advance climate resilience, supporting government agencies in building climate policy, and much more. Stay tuned for our new Instagram account to follow their adventures!

More than 150 faculty members at the University of Delaware identify as working on teaching, scholarship, or service related to climate change, and many more staff and students work on climate-related issues through institutes, centers, and projects on campus, in the community, and around the world. Climate expertise, knowledge, and experiences are dispersed across units ranging from agriculture to climatology, engineering, finance, health, and policy.  The Climate Hub was founded in 2021 to foster greater cross-University collaboration and to elevate the state of the University as a climate leader. Climate change is a whole-of-University and whole-of-society issue, and the Hub reflects that.  Our work is structured around three main goals and is shaped throughout by three core values.






Expand and improve educational opportunities, both formal and informal

Provide skill-building opportunities for learners of all ages at all stages


Promote climate as a whole-University endeavor across all disciplines and units

Facilitate engagement between on- and off-campus partners

UD Climate Leadership

Amplify climate work across UD

Support UD’s long-term commitment to climate action
