A presentation from 2023–2024 Radcliffe-Salata Climate Justice Fellow Jennie C. Stephens

At Radcliffe, Stephens is completing her book manuscript, provisionally titled Climate Justice Universities: Reimagining the Transformative Power of Higher Education (Johns Hopkins University Press, forthcoming), which reimagines how higher education could accelerate transformative social innovation toward a more just, healthy, and stable fossil fuel–free future. The book proposes a paradigm shift to leverage the untapped potential of institutions of higher education to advance systemic social change to reduce growing health inequities, economic injustices, and climate vulnerabilities. This project of hope and possibility challenges complacency about how current university systems concentrate wealth and power, sustain fossil fuel reliance, and reinforce inequities and injustices.
