The summit, which was held in Atlanta, Georgia, brings together higher education leaders from across the nation share cutting-edge solutions and ideas during next-level conversations.
“At Randolph, we are committed to taking action to address climate change causes and to working with our community to bolster community resilience to climate impacts” Warren said. “Representing Randolph at the Higher Education Climate Leadership Summit is an opportunity to share our strategies and to learn from best practices at other institutions.”

Warren also presented with two colleagues from Virginia Wesleyan University. Their discussion focused on leveraging sustainability initiatives on campus to boost undergraduate enrollment and retention.
