Climate Minor Professional Development
As part of the Climate Justice, Science and Policy minor, students must complete one or more professional development (PD) activities as a way to develop skills beyond the classroom. Use this form to submit a professional development (PD) activity that you completed for the Climate Justice, Science and Policy (CJSP) minor.
The requirement is fulfilled through attending events that relate to climate change. These events may be “active” or passive”. An active PD is where students interact with people and participate in an activity. A passive PD is where students watch a webinar or another form of learning typically online without interacting with people.
Yes, an “active PD” must be 2 hours in length, and a “passive PD” must be 4 hours in length.
Yes, students may attend multiple events to reach the total time requirement. Possible combinations of events could include:
- 2 hours of active plus 0 hours passive,
- 1.5 hours active plus 1 hour passive event,
- 1 hour active plus 2 hours passive,
- or 0 hours active plus 4 hours passive.
