Tuesday, October 27 | 3:00PM–3:45PM ET
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Live Session

What can we foresee about the impact of climate change on campus technology? This session uses cutting-edge research to explore that question and asks participants to consider additional questions: Which IT services are likely to grow or be curtailed? What role does IT play in academic redesign driven by climate change? What can we learn from our COVID-19 experience?


Understand the possible impacts of climate change on higher ed technology * Be aware of emerging institutional strategic choices for addressing the climate crisis * Foresee potential transformations to campus IT in response to the climate crisis
