Bunker Hill Community College

Elizabeth Kolbert, author of the acclaimed bestseller on global warming, Field Notes from a Catastrophe, will give the keynote address at the Massachusetts Community College Conference on Teaching, Learning and Student Development at Bunker Hill Community College on April 9th, 2010.

Kolbert, a former Albany, N.Y. bureau chief for The New York Times, has been a staff writer at The New Yorker since 1999. Published in 2006, Field Notes from a Catastrophe has been a major force in educating readers around the world about global warming. Kolbert's book reports on evidence of global warming that she found in travelling around the world. Field Notes from a Catastrophe is the 2009 selection for the BHCC One Book Program, which invites the entire college to read and discuss a particular selection throughout the year.

BHCC President Mary L. Fifield is a charter signatory of the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment (ACUPCC). Launched in 2007, the ACUPCC is a network of 650 schools, representing all fifty states and the District of Colombia. This effort to address global warming garners institutional commitments to neutralize greenhouse gas emissions and accelerate the research and educational efforts of higher education to equip society to re-stabilize the earth's climate.

On Sept. 15, the President's Climate Commitment Committee submitted its Action Plan to the ACUPCC.

Bunker Hill Community College is the largest community college in Massachusetts. The College enrolls more than 10,900 students on two campuses and at five satellite locations. Over 1,500 students take classes online. BHCC is one of the most diverse institutions of higher education in the Commonwealth. Six in ten students are people of color and more than half of BHCC's students are women. The College also enrolls more than 690 international students who come from more than 95 countries and speak 75 different languages.
