Seminar Series

Each semester since Fall 2012, the Biology Department has also organized a special symposium with eminent guest speakers from a wide variety of fields to lecture on and discuss the many biological, economic and social aspects of sustainability. 

The seminars take place during the fall and spring semesters on Fridays from 3:00-4:00 p.m. in ISC-3-3300.
