School Seminar Series

Fall 2017 seminar will be held in the Small Science Auditorium in the old Science Center (S01-006) at 2pm.

This Fall we are highlighting the work done by our faculty.  As the School encompasses numerous disciplines, too often we lose sight of each other and the potential for new collaborations.  We also seek to share with the University community the unique breadth of expertise in the School and to more deeply engage our undergraduate students by sharing with them the multiple opportunities for research open to them in the School for the Environment.
