Institute for Climate, Water, and the Environment at Gonzaga University

Resources from Gonzaga's Climate Center on teaching and supporting sustainability and climate justice.

Welcome to The Climate Institute!

Founded in 2021, Gonzaga's Institute for Climate, Water, and the Environment provides resources and opportunities to students, faculty, community members, and leaders in the Inland Northwest to meet the unprecedented challenges facing humanity and the wider natural environment in the 21st century. Such a vision is central to our identity as a Jesuit institution of higher learning. As Pope Francis writes, “All Christian communities have an important role to play in ecological education.”

This guide was created as a central location for resources on climate, society, and the environment, including relevant published research by Gonzaga faculty, teaching resources, journals and other publications available through the library, and more.
