Gund Tea: Lesley-Ann Dupigny-Giroux, Meeting UVM's Land Grant Mission: A Reflection on the Vermont State Climate Office

Lesley-Ann Dupigny-Giroux, Associate Professor, Geography and VT State Climatologist, discusses the role of the Vermont State Climate Office at UVM.  

The Vermont State Climate Office is an AASC-recognized State Climate Office. As such, Dr. Dupigny-Giroux' mandate to provide climate research, outreach, communications and information to the State of Vermont, dovetails intricately with the UVM's mission and land-grant legacy. Her presentation will highlight her contributions, challenges and lessons learned while working with K-grey Vermonters, State and Federal Agencies and UVM students.

This event is part of the weekly Gund Tea Series, an opportunity for affiliates of the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics and the broader University community to engage in robust discussion about topical research, current events, and relevant theory.

The Gund Institute is a hub for transdisciplinary scholarship, based at the University of Vermont and comprising diverse faculty, students, and collaborators worldwide.
