The Rutgers Climate Institute is a University-wide effort to address one of the most important issues of our time through research, education and outreach. The Institute draws upon strengths in many departments at Rutgers facilitating collaboration across a broad range of disciplines in the natural and social sciences, the humanities, engineering, law, and medicine.

Our faculty affiliates are scholars whose research effects areas as close to home as the Raritan River and Jersey Shore, and as far as Africa and Indonesia. A key aspect of RCI's work is public outreach, education and service to New Jersey. The Institute regularly hosts events on climate change topics of interest open to the public as well as the Rutgers community featuring notable climate scientists and  international, federal, and state policy-makers, journalists, and authors.
