Climate Action Task Force

The Task Force on Climate Action is charged with examining the role for scholarly leadership from ACSP in climate change research and in our programs’ curricula. This task force is charged with examining how ACSP should respond to the challenge of climate change in all our association’s activities. This includes, but is not limited to, advice on curriculum, association operations, the annual conference, administrators’ conference, workshops, and research synergies. The task force is particularly encouraged to consider and plan for a workshop on climate action research and scholarship coincident with the 2021 ACSP annual conference in Miami.
