CCSLRI Networking Luncheon Is Sept. 20

Leaders of Old Dominion University's Climate Change and Sea Level Rise Initiative (CCSLRI) are planning a "networking lunch" for Thursday, Sept. 20, and extending a special invitation to faculty members whose courses this semester will touch on issues aligned with the initiative.

Larry Atkinson, the oceanography professor who is leading the CCSLRI, said faculty members who are incorporating climate change, sea level rise or sustainability in their courses will be encouraged to make a brief presentation about the instruction they are planning.

The lunch, beginning at noon, will be at the Gordon Art Galleries on Monarch Way between 45th and 46th streets. Curricula presentations will begin at 12:30 p.m. Faculty members who want to attend should RSVP to Elizabeth Smith, the CCSLRI coordinator, at exsmith@odu.edu by Sept. 17.

Smith said presenters so far and their subject areas are: Wie Yusuf, public policy; Tom Chapman, cartography; Jane Rowe, environmental communication; David Basco, coastal engineering; Carol Considine, sustainable construction practices; David Burdige, global environmental change; and Cindy Tomovic, STEM education and professional studies.
