Former EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy to give lecture on Climate Change

October 25, 2019

A former Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator Gina McCarthy is coming to campus today to lecture on climate change and environmental protection. The lecture will take place in Kresge Auditorium in the Visual Arts Center at 12:30 p.m..

In addition to her lecture, McCarthy will visit an Environmental Studies class, have lunch with faculty and visit the President’s Summer Research Symposium.

McCarthy’s lecture is sponsored by the College’s Arnold D. Kates Lecture Fund, which supports regular lectures, seminars and colloquia on scientific topics, especially from guests who specialize in biological or health sciences.

The organizers of the lecture hope that McCarthy’s varied experiences in both politics and science will expose students to the different ways studying biological and health sciences can be applied—whether by conducting scientific research or pursuing a career in public policy.

Prior to her work at the EPA, McCarthy served as an environmental advisor to five different Massachusetts governors and was the Assistant Administrator for the EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation. She led the EPA from 2013 to 2017 as the agency’s 13th administrator. McCarthy is currently a Senior Leadership Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, as well as an operating advisor at Pegasus Capital and a member of the Board of Directors at the Energy Foundation and Ceres.
