Welcome to the Environmental Engineering Seminar Series!

The Environmental Engineering Seminar Series will take place in a hybrid fashion on Fridays 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. in the SEEC Building, room N124.  All graduate students in the program are required to attend these seminars.  We invite everyone to attend in person to reconnect with their peers and professors.  These Friday seminars have historically (20+ years) provided an opportunity for EVEN affiliates to create a sense of community with professors, fellow students, and others.  We look forward to having you join us!

*Please note that masks will be required at all times for those attending in person.

The seminar announcements are also sent out though email. If you'd like to be added to our mailing list, please contact the EVEN office.
