Texas Southern University’s Receives $150,000 Grant from W.K. Kellogg Foundation for Climate Education Partnership

The Mickey Leland Center for Environment, Justice and Sustainability, part of the Barbara Jordan - Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs at Texas Southern University, was recently awarded a $150,000 grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The grant will be used to support the planning of a Climate Education Community University Partnership (CECUP).

The CECUP will be an 11-state consortium of public and private Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and vulnerable communities located on the Gulf Coast and South Atlantic Region of the United States.

“The goal of this initiative is to educate and raise public awareness, provide opportunities for emergency and environmental management education from members of underserved communities and develop a collective capacity to prepare for, respond to and recover from climate change and other natural and human-made disasters,” said Dr. Robert D. Bullard, Dean of the Barbara Jordan-Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs.

This initiative will support the development of a multi-university partnership focused on educating community leaders and emerging leaders (youth and students) about the environmental, health and social causes, impacts and consequences of climate change, mitigation and adaptation strategies, and community resilience to disasters

Additional funds will be sought to support the CECUP once it is established.
