Climate Action Plan

President Perman recently signed Second Nature's Climate, Carbon, and Resilience Commitment Statements. With other University presidents and chancellors, Perman has pledged UMB's leadership and participation in work to reduce and mitigate climate change.

From the pledge statement:

"We, the undersigned presidents and chancellors of colleges and universities, believe firmly in the power, potential, and imperative of higher education’s key role in shaping a sustainable society. Not only are we deeply concerned about the increasing pace and intensity of global climate change and the potential for unprecedented detrimental impacts, but we also understand that technology, infrastructure, global interconnectedness, and our greatest asset – engaged, committed, smart students – allow us to explore bold and innovative solutions and to lead in climate action and sustainable solutions."
