In December 2022, CU Boulder is hosting the Right Here, Right Now Global Climate Summit in partnership with U.N. Human Rights. The summit is bringing together experts, youth activists, global leaders and citizens — like you — to discuss the impacts climate change has on human rights. In this issue, we’re highlighting CU research that examines some of these impacts, which hit vulnerable communities and populations more directly. After reading these stories, I hope you’ll join us online at the summit.
We’ve also included stories to delight and inspire: from goat yoga at the CU Rec Center to Buffs leading as local politicians and CU’s first Pro Football Hall of Famer. And, after two years of remote and hybrid operations, campus was bursting with life for the 2022 commencement, which celebrated over 9,000 Forever Buffs from the classes of ’22, ’21, ’20 — and even ’68!
CU Boulder is rich with stories to celebrate; we’re honored to print these — and welcome your ideas for more.
