Does the institution hold major events related to sustainability, such as conferences, speaker series, or symposia, that have students as the intended audience?:
A brief description of the event(s):
Environmental Studies hosts the Howard E. Woodin Colloquium Series every Thursday during the school year. Students, faculty, staff, and community members come together over lunch to hear from a broad range of speakers — faculty, alumni, environmental professionals, and students — as they cover a variety of conservation and environmental topics. Another sustainability event is the Scott A. Margolin Lecture in Environmental Affairs, an annual lecture with an interdisciplinary approach to the natural environment and human interaction with it. Environmental Affairs also hosts various sustainability-related speakers and film screenings throughout the fine. There is also an annual Sustainability Summit that serves as a chance for everyone working on sustainability projects on campus to come together. Also, students who receive Sustainable Study Abroad Grants report on their projects at a symposium every semester.
