Upgrading cooling centers
What is a cooling center? How are they changing? What does such a thing have to do with higher ed?
Cooling centers are shaded, enclosed, and obviously cooler spaces for people to shelter in during bad heat waves. Colleges and universities afflicted by problematic heat should consider building some, or renovating current spaces to serve that purpose, as I’ve written previously. Some campuses already do so. The key point is that as climate change increases temperatures, there will be greater need for such spaces.
