The School of Earth and Environmental Sciences is proud to offer weekly colloquiums during the academic year from speakers of diverse backgrounds in geoscience and related disciplines. Topics often include: astronomy, climate change, volcanology, sustainability, green infrastructure, geochemistry, and more. All colloquiums are free to attend and will be held in the Science Building on the first floor in room D-135 unless otherwise posted.
In addition to colloquiums hosted by our department, you will find details about seminars presented by our faculty at off-campus locations.
