Priority Symposium — "Climate Change"
Oak Pavilion (LO-31B)
|About the "Climate Change"
According to a report from
the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA), more than 153 million
people are estimated to live in coastal counties,
accounting for 53% of the U.S. population.
Globally, sea level rise has the potential to
impact two billion people living along
coastlines. From threats to marine organisms to
water supply, ocean acidification, storm surge
and hurricanes, Florida is on the front line of
climate change impacts in the country. These
impacts, and our nation's current energy crisis,
will continue to require new and innovative
research as well as creative solutions. The
Research Symposium on Climate Change will
highlight adaptation to climate change in South
Florida detailing local, state and federal
initiatives and current climate change research
activities by FAU faculty, students and their
colleagues. This symposium will include a
breakfast, poster display, keynote presentation,
and panel discussion taking place from 9:00 a.m.
until 1:00 p.m. at the Live Oak Pavilion
(LO-31B), 777 Glades Roads in Boca Raton.

various disciplines at FAU will showcase their
research and creative activity at the
Undergraduate Research Symposium. The symposium

Education Symposium — "The Changing Landscape of Higher
Live Oak Pavilion
|About the "The Changing Landscape of

accountability at The Changing Landscape of
Higher Education Symposium taking place from 1:30

granting state colleges, the growth of for profit
colleges and technological advances with
e-learning? With declining state appropriations
for higher education, what are the implications
and challenges for colleges and universities? How
will increasing demands for accountability
transform higher education? What are the key
issues, challenges and opportunities facing
Florida Atlantic University in the future?
