About the Hixon Center

The Hixon Center for Climate and the Environment supports the campus community in three key areas: undergraduate curriculum, faculty scholarship, and engaging programming for all.

The Hixon Center is developing a leading undergraduate climate program that is forward-looking, which entails a program that is solutions-focused, technically broad, and aligned with the mission of Harvey Mudd College. The Center will build a program that enables our students to make meaningful contributions in the fields of climate and the environment so that future generations will inherit a more livable planet. This program will include curriculum and professional opportunities that address scientific and societal challenges presented by climate change, from battery storage to environmental justice. Our broadly educated, skilled graduates, who understand the impact of their work on society, will be highly sought after by both employers and graduate programs.

Students may visit Emphasis in Environmental Analysis for more information on the program.

Harvey Mudd College is a place for problem-solvers. Students will develop their skills and knowledge by participating in faculty-led research, capstone experiences on and off campus, and student-initiated projects, such as those sponsored by the Shanahan fund. Visit Hixon Center Research for more information on active research programs and how to get involved.

The Hixon Center for Climate and the Environment is the campus home for programming including formal public events and student-led activities as well as coordinated, 5C speakers and programs.
