The application period for these seats has closed.
The process of updating the UF Climate Action Plan is being 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.
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.
