Working Groups: AJCU participants at the 2015 Climate Change Conference spent a considerable amount of time discussing their school's sustainability asset maps and the environmental curriculum already in place or being developed at their schools. As a result, two working groups were developed. Interested AJCU members will continue to work on these initiatives throughout the 2015–2016 academic school year. Our working groups will meet monthly and report back at the 2016 Climate Change Conference.

Working Group 1: Climate Action Pledge
This group will meet monthly to develop a statement from the 28 AJCU Presidents professing their concerns about climate change and creating a pledge for campus sustainability actions.

Working Group 2: Curriculum Sharing across the AJCU network
This group will meet monthly to coordinate ways in which students from the 28 AJCUs can take environmental sustainability courses from other AJCUs to enrich their learning.
