Climate+Climate+ is a new vertical offered within Duke University’s Data+ program, a full-time, ten-week summer research experience that welcomes Duke undergraduate and masters students interested in exploring new data-driven approaches to interdisciplinary challenges.

Climate+ is aligned with Duke University’s commitment to advancing interdisciplinary understanding of the causes and societal impacts of climate change as well as potential solutions for long-term sustainability, including climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies.

In addition to experiencing all the general educational benefits of the Data+ program, Climate+ students will form a subcohort that engages regularly with climate, environment, and energy researchers and practitioners. Like the broader Data+ program, each Climate+ project team will consist of at most three undergraduates and one graduate student, who will work in a communal environment to learn how to marshal, analyze, and visualize data. Graduate students (including master’s and PhD students) typically serve as project managers, helping their teams stay on track with deliverables and timeline; their compensation may vary.

Climate+ is offered by the Rhodes Information Initiative at Duke in partnership with the Nicholas Institute for Energy, Environment & Sustainability.
