Hixon Center for Climate and the Environment

The Hixon Center for Climate and the Environment at Harvey Mudd College is an interdisciplinary home for all campus efforts related to climate, sustainability, and environmental studies including curricular development, research, and programming.

Harvey Mudd College is a mission-driven institution where the pursuit of technical depth and breadth is tightly coupled to a desire to have a positive impact on society. The Hixon Center for Climate and the Environment speaks directly to this mission: the center promotes deep intellectual curiosity and scientific rigor in studying the complexities of earth’s climate system and all the interconnected phenomena, with a particular focus on ways to address the challenges of our rapidly changing climate. From advances in clean energy and adaptation infrastructure to basic physical principles of our planet, the center serves as a hub for students, faculty, staff and alumni to engage in collaborative discourse and actions to solve environmental problems on campus and beyond.

Harvey Mudd College is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, a signatory to the Second Nature Climate Leadership Carbon Commitment, a member of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), and a STARS Silver rated institution (as of May 2019).
