The Yale Daily News highlighted the newly formed Campus Consortium partnership between the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication and the Pulitzer Center in an article published on Wednesday, October 26, 2016.
"Our ultimate question, as academics, is 'why' — what are the psychological, cultural and political reasons behind why some people are really engaged, apathetic, or downright hostile or dismissive about climate change?" Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the YPCCC, told The Yale Daily News. "What we're looking at with the Pulitzer Center is opportunities with their great set of reporters to find key stories about climate change and get them on the air." 
The YPCCC is a non-partisan multimedia climate news service based in the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and is the only university among the 28 campus consortium partnerships with the Pulitzer Center to focus directly on climate change. Both the YPCCC and the Pulitzer Center are excited about future projects together, including the student fellowship program that will be open to all Yale students. Those selected for the Campus Consortium fellowship will have the opportunity to pursue their own reporting projects around the world and receive mentoring from Pulitzer Center journalists and staff.

Other projects in the works include a spring training workshop for radio reporting on climate change for undergraduate and graduate students as well as public presentations by established environmental journalists. Award-winning Science magazine correspondent Eli Kintisch speaks about his Pulitzer Center-supported reporting on the Arctic and climate change for the inaugural Campus Consortium visit to Yale University on Thursday, December 1, 2016, with Pulitzer Center Executive Director Jon Sawyer.
