诊所 Program Broadens Reach with Climate 诊所s

分享故事

The 诊所 Program at Harvey Mudd College, a collaboration between education and industry for more than 50 years, features 45 projects for the 2023–2024 academic year. Sponsors range from a Hawaiian science museum to an international medical device manufacturer.

Harvey Mudd alumni and parents, key partners in facilitating 诊所 connections, helped enable projects in computer science, engineering, mathematics and physics. 两个 of this year’s projects are Global 诊所s, sponsored by alumni who work for Medtronic and the Technical University of Denmark Wind Energy.

In partnership with the 钟中心 for Climate and the Environment, the 诊所 Program features two fully funded Climate 诊所s. This funding supports the College’s commitment to climate science and also opened doors for conversations with other organizations, resulting in 10 projects that explore climate technology in the energy and automotive sectors as well as national labs.

A new endowment from Fletcher Jones Foundation supports one Climate 诊所 project sponsored by Cowbell Labs, which is pursuing a scalable mechanism for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the agriculture sector, 都在美国.S. 和国外. Cowbell Labs is a spin-off of Spark Climate Solutions, a nonprofit co-founded by David Mann ‘01 that is committed to accelerating emerging climate solutions fields.

另一个气候诊所, in partnership with the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), is focused on evaluating the equitable allocation of funding under recent federal infrastructure bills. The 诊所 team will study how funding is being distributed and if this is in accordance with state and federal policies designed to ensure the funds go to communities disadvantaged, underserved or overburdened by pollution. The UCS project was privately funded by an HMC parent.

Through the 诊所 Program, entrepreneurial endeavors are also being supported. 两个 students will develop and test novel ideas—one climate-related project, the other a biotechnology startup—with the goal of launching their companies after graduation.

Forty-six percent of current Harvey Mudd 诊所 Program sponsors have previously sponsored projects.
