What We Do

The Kentucky Climate Consortium (KYCC) supports efforts to develop rich and interdisciplinary research and teaching collaborations across the sciences, engineering, social sciences, humanities, and the arts.

Consortium members have extensive experience researching and teaching climate-related issues, both in and beyond Kentucky. Members are also engaged in community-oriented climate work, through nonformal educational opportunities, public lectures, and more.  

The KYCC was created in 2018 by Dr. Carmen Agouridis (University of Kentucky, Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering) and Dr. Lauren Cagle (University of Kentucky, Department of Writing, Rhetoric, and Digital Studies).


If you are a researcher in Kentucky studying climate change, you may be eligible to join the Kentucky Climate Consortium. KYCC membership connects you to a vibrant network of scholars interested in all dimensions of climate and how it affects Kentucky.
