Climate Research Initiative

Teaching and Curricula


Over sixty percent of academic departments have sustainability course offerings and there are more than 400 courses in 40 academic departments related to climate and sustainability. Much of the success is due to the Piedmont Project, a nationally recognized training program for Emory faculty to incorporate sustainability and environmental issues into the curriculum.

The School of Medicine is a nationally recognized leader in incorporating climate change into the curriculum, receiving excellent marks from the Planetary Health Report Card. Dr. Mehul Tejani has furthered these advances by introducing SOM residents to the intersection between climate change and health through an innovative grant project.

The Interprofessional Education-Achieving Collaborative Team Solutions (IPE-ACTS) is an interprofessional training program for first-year students in the Woodruff Health Sciences Center health professional schools. IPE-ACTS provides health professional students with the opportunity to address critical health challenges in Atlanta.
