Leadership Level Signatories

The following schools have demonstrated unprecedented leadership in the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment and are supporters at the Leadership Level.

Leadership dues will be used to engage recently retired presidents, provosts, and business officers as ACUPCC Fellows to work with current leaders in higher education to help grow and support the ACUPCC network in the most effective and least expensive way.

ACUPCC Fellows will bring a unique combination of very high intellectual capacity on the subject matter with years of experience leading institutions of various types. The Fellows will enable peer-to-peer learning and action that will complement the work of the ACUPCC to date in a way that no other group can.

The ACUPCC plans to form an “Alumni” group to keep presidents and other senior leaders who have retired from ACUPCC institutions engaged with this important work. Candidates for fellowships will be drawn from this ACUPCC Alumni group.
