Climate Gentrification: Is Sea Rise Turning Miami High Ground into a Hot Commodity?
Miami faces anywhere from 14 to 34 inches of sea rise by 2060, and some believe developers see the scarce high ground (much of it in the city occupied by low-income communities of color) as a safe investment. They call it climate gentrification.


The University of Miami Office of Civic and Community Engagement (CCE) is a university-wide initiative that fosters campus-community collaboration by engaging the university’s academic resources in the enrichment of civic and community life. CCE develops teaching and research strategies that directly link academic scholarship to public practice by fostering stronger connections between the University and the South Florida community, integrating civic engagement and community-based partnerships into the curriculum, and promoting community service through experiential learning for students.  The goal is to promote a model of engagement based on a culture of collaboration and an ethic of reciprocity, recognizing the importance of knowledge co-creation and diverse forms of expertise.  This year, CCE is celebrating its 10th anniversary! We invite you to celebrate our accomplishments with us by visiting the 10-Year Anniversary By The Numbers page.

CCE has that ability to know and bring together all the right people at the right place and time, in the right forum, and with the right information.
