Welcome to the Environmental Engineering Seminar Series!

The Environmental Engineering Program Seminar Series will take place each Friday of the Spring 2022 semester from 12:30p.m. until 1:30p.m..  Each seminar will be held in a hybrid modality unless otherwise noted for a particular seminar.  We invite everyone to attend in person, in SEEC N126, 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!

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.
