This symposium is an important opportunity for students to present their research to a broad audience. And, importantly, your interaction with the students greatly enhances the professional development aspects of this project. The 2020 class includes a multidisciplinary group: a graduate student from Public Administration, and undergraduates from Biomedical Sciences, Environmental Design, Natural Resource Management, Global Studies, and Interdisciplinary Studies, who are seeking minors in Urban Environmental Sciences, Natural Resources Ecology, Sustainability Studies, History, Military Science, Nature Based Recreation, Spanish, Watershed Sciences, Geography, and Rural and Community Development.
This program has been funded by an NSF Research Traineeship program grant, with the goal of training graduate students in climate resilience communication.
