The University of the District of Columbia is HBCU, and only urban-land grant and fully-accredited public institution of higher education in the nation's capital. The newly established College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES) of the University of the District of Columbia, provides a sustainable bridge from college to the world. CAUSES is the embodiment of the urban land-grant mission as it ties together academics, research and extension/ outreach to prepare students and residents of the District of Columbia for successful careers and meaningful lives in the green and global economy of the future. Our success is possible through understanding climate change issues and its effects, and ability to integrate contemporary tools and reliable data sources into studies of climate change, mitigation and adaptation. The syllabus was developed for the AMS Climate Studies course, and it is the approval process to be offered as a general education course Discovery Writing: Climate Studies in Spring 2013.
