|Title:||Review of 'Degrees that matter: climate change and the university': Anna Rappaport and Sarah Creighton, Cambridge, MA, MIT Press||Contributor(s):||Littledyke, Michael (author)||Publication Date:||2008||DOI:||10.1080/03075070802373289||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/3608||Abstract:||'Degrees that matter' is an excellent guide for universities and colleges to take on leadership in responding to global warming and climate change. The authors, with a decade's experience in successfully leading Tuft University's climate initiatives, present a comprehensive guide to support other higher education institutions in responding to the challenge of institutional change to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, through developing policy and organising for change in practice. The authors have produced a highly useful, practical guide for change, which effectively disseminates their experiences in promoting change at Tufts as a case-study model. The Tufts experience provides valuable lessons and a potential model for action across the university campus, with strategies for action and important supporting information to promote leadership, and to inform decisions and action for change.||Publication Type:||Review||Source of Publication:||Studies in Higher Education, 33(5), p. 627-628||Publisher:||Routledge||Place of Publication:||London, UK||ISSN:||0307-5079||Field of Research (FOR):||130399 Specialist Studies in Education not elsewhere classified||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||930502 Management of Education and Training Systems||HERDC Category Description:||D3 Review of Single Work||Other Links:||http://books.google.com.au/books?id=HEvunUBnAu8C||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 126
