Climate modeling began about 50 years ago, as a purely academic endeavor. Although things have changed considerably, especially during the past 20 years, universities have a continuing major role in model development and applications, and in training young modelers-to-be. I will discuss the history, comment on where we are now, and offer some thoughts about where the field is going.
