Inaugural HBCU Climate Change Student Conference Challenges Students to Become Climate Justice Advocates for Vulnerable Communities


April 22, 2013 — Dillard University’s Deep South Center for Environmental Justice hosted the First Annual HBCU Climate Change Student Conference, Bridging the Gap Between Climate Change Theory and Experience, April 4 – 6, 2013. Over 100 students, faculty, staff, and environmental leaders from across the country came together to discuss the devastating effects climate change is having on vulnerable communities. The purpose of the inaugural Historically Black College and University (HBCU) Climate Change Student Conference was to educate minority students on climate change theory and experience as it relates to racial, social, public health, and economic disparities in the wake of weather related disasters. Nine HBCUs were represented at the conference including Dillard University, Morgan State University, Howard University, Spelman College, Southern University Baton Rouge, Texas Southern University, Tennessee State University, Florida A & M, and Meharry College.

The three day conference included a book signing, an undergraduate and graduate student poster session, a coastal community tour, and climate change sessions for middle school students from the Dillard University Emerging Scholars - STEM Program.
