The Global Change Center Advisory Committee is composed of GCC affiliated Virginia Tech faculty representing the broadly defined thematic areas of the center (habitat loss, pollution, invasive species, disease, climate change), plus others in relevant fields (e.g., sociology, economics, policy, history). Committee members are appointed by the GCC Director Bill Hopkins for two-year terms, and represent a balance of perspectives and interests from around campus. The mission of the committee is to develop policies, goals, and directives of the center, as well as assisting in conducting the center’s business.
