In the last University Lecture of 2015, Klein urged students to continue to act as part of a global network of social justice.

By November, the fear of imminent and endless snow weighs heavily on everyone’s mind in Syracuse. No surprise than that the uncharacteristically balmy 70-degree weather Tuesday delighted most students.

“This is the warmest early November weather recorded in 38 years,” Klein said in her opening remarks. “Right now, 2015 is shaping up to be the warmest year recorded, just as 2014 was the year previously.”
