All are welcome to attend.

The Environmental Studies Colloquium Series events are held on Thursdays at 2:30 PM in Kinesiology Room 106. All faculty, staff, and students are strongly encouraged to attend. The format of seminars is flexible (e.g., research talk, panel or roundtable discussion, PechaKucha, skills-building workshops, career or alumni sessions).
