Hixon Center for Climate and the Environment

Harvey Mudd College is bringing together interdisciplinary experts in climate science, impacts, and solutions to create tomorrow’s undergraduate STEM program.

The Hixon Center for Climate and the Environment at Harvey Mudd College is the primary home for campus efforts related to climate, sustainability, and environmental studies, including course development, faculty-led scholarship, and special events.

To address the multifaceted challenges presented by our changing climate, the center is actively recruiting faculty for joint appointments across all departments. This will ensure our program is reflective of the interdisciplinary nature of the climate crisis. Regardless of a student’s aligned discipline, they will find an avenue to apply their passion and make an impact on society. At Harvey Mudd College, our culture of innovation and collaboration equips students to harness their chosen field of study towards meaningful climate solutions and responsible stewardship of our planet.
