UF CAP: Ways to Get Involved
The University of Florida is in the process of updating the UF Climate Action Plan (CAP). Throughout this process, there will be multiple opportunities for the UF community to engage including: applying to participate in a Working Group, providing feedback at coordinated opportunities, and providing comments through the online comment form.
We want to hear from you! If you are interested in submitting comments or feedback regarding climate action or the UF Climate Action Plan, please complete the comment form below.
Please keep in mind: If you are seeking an interview of any kind, you must go through the official interview request process as outlined on our website. Interview requests submitted through the CAP comment form will not receive a response.
Apply for an Open Call Seat on a Working Group
The process of updating the UF Climate Action Plan will be informed by 6 working groups made up of stakeholders from across the university on the topics of Energy, Transportation, Built Environment, Offsets & Finance, Resilience, and Academics. In January of 2021, members of the UF community were invited to apply for open call seats on each of the 6 UF CAP Working Groups. In addition to being made up of key stakeholders from across campus, each of these Working Groups includes 4 open call seats – a faculty, staff, undergraduate, and graduate student seat. The application period for these seats has closed.
These working groups will participate in a series of facilitated sessions to generate and discuss goals. Visit this page to learn more and view the updated schedule of meetings.
