The University Climate Change Coalition’s first policy topic of interest as indicated by the Ohio State University President Drake and supported by his colleagues is carbon pricing. UC3 convened subject matter experts from across North America to discuss Higher Education’s Role in Advancing Carbon Pricing. This preliminary brief includes a menu of options for college and university leaders who want to engage on this issue internally on their campuses or externally with cross-sector partners. A supplementary white paper that will dive deeper into these opportunities and highlight case studies will be published later in 2019.
