I am deeply grateful for Gonzaga University’s institutional embrace of this challenge through the creation of the Center for Climate, Society, and the Environment, a place for innovative scholarship, teaching, consulting, and capacity building. The Center embodies very well what we Jesuits call our Four Universal Apostolic Preferences, orientations that Pope Francis has given to us for our life and mission over the coming decade.”
Fr. Arturo Sosa, S.J. — General Superior, Society of Jesus

Gonzaga University offers students and the regional community the opportunity to learn about climate issues. 

Now offering a professional certificate in Climate Action Planning

This certificate is a non-degree program designed for professionals who wish to develop knowledge, skills and best practices related to climate action planning. A climate action plan is a road map that guides a local community (municipality, business, or church) to achieving its climate emission-reduction goals, while making it more resilient to climate change.
