The Emory Climate Research Initiative (ECRI) was established by Provost Ravi Bellamkonda in October of 2022 with the goal of fostering an interdisciplinary academic community at Emory University to research and educate on climate change. The core faculty leadership team is comprised of representatives from each school within Emory (Public Health, Theology, Law, Medicine, College of Arts and Sciences, Oxford College, Nursing, and Business). In the coming years, the initiative will seek to expand faculty involvement in climate-related research, teaching and action, while collaborating with other Emory teams working on sustainability and climate issues.
ECRI aims to establish the university as a national leader in climate change scholarship, solutions, and impact while serving as a regional anchor institution for our shared response to climate change.
