President's Climate Commitment

In June 2007, Juniata President Tom Kepple signed the American College and University President's Climate Commitment. The cause is an effort by higher education institutions to fight global warming by acquiring commitments to neutralize greenhouse gas emissions and to increase research on the issue. By recognizing the influence higher education has on students and communities, the Commitment offers an outline for campuses to become climate neutral. President Kepple stated at the signing of the Commitment "I believe colleges must be on the forefront of the effort to reverse the path we are on for the health of future generations."

By joining the cause, Juniata has committed to do the following:

Develop a comprehensive plan to achieve climate neutrality as soon as possible.

Initiate two or more of the following actions to reduce greenhouse gases while the more comprehensive plan is being developed:

Make the action plan, inventory, and periodic progress reports publicly available for posting and distribution.
