Gettysburg College supports climate action!

Hi everyone,

I am delighted to share the news with you that President Riggs signed the open letter / pledge to continue to support climate action to meet the Paris Agreement. Gettysburg College will join hundreds of other colleges, universities, businesses, states, and cities that have agreed to pursue action to “remain actively engaged with the international community as part of the global effort to hold warming to well below 2 and to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy that will benefit our security, prosperity, and health.” (for the full Open Letter, refer to )


Thank you President Riggs for signing this letter two days ago and recognizing the importance of Gettysburg College participating in this global initiative. (Gettysburg College now shows up on the website: )
