WVU to focus on climate change in two venues over three days

Monongalia and Preston

A packed room of faculty, staff and students gathered at the West Virginia State Univerity’s Davis College of Agriculture Sciences building, as visiting presenter, Toddi Steelman, spoke on various topics connected to climate change.

The ‘A Change In The Climate Change’ presentation showed how climate change has affected the state and nation as a whole, as well as ways on how it can bring people together for one common goal.

“Recent polls have indicated that more Americans are aware of climate change and are asking the government to do something about it in part because we are experiencing on the ground so many extreme climate events like floods, fires, hurricanes and those sorts of things.” said Steelman, dean of Nichloas School of the Environment at Duke University,

In addition to Steelman’s presentation, WVU’s Davis College will also host the principal of Ma Parker Associates, Mamie Parker, who will share a presentation called “Passion, Inspiration and Excellence.”

The presentation will take place Wednesday night at 6:30 in the lower lobby of Percival Hall.

The seminars precede a day-long exposition of WVU’s leading climate change experts April 1.
