Message from Provost Sotiropoulos

I was pleased to be part of this year's VCU Common Book Speaker Series which, given the topic of this year's book selection (Elizabeth Rush's, "Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore"), centered around the important issue of climate change.

In addition to discussing the book, I also drew from my own experiences and research to offer large-scale solutions to climate change using tides, wind, and engineering.

To see my presentation, as well as other outstanding talks from our faculty, visit the Common Book website's video gallery.
