Thinking Across Departments

The Environmental Resilience Institute hosts monthly Open House sessions for graduate students interested in discussing their research with other students from around Grounds working on environmental resilience related topics. Our Open House events are part of the student-led, ERI supported, Graduate Research Forum (GRF). The GRF is open to all grad students and invests in activities that advance novel frameworks, theories, models, and applications that are transformative and have societal impacts.  We hope you can attend this and other GRF events!

On Oct. 28th from 12-1pm, Valerie Michel and Kevyn Hadley will host the GRF Open House.  Attendees will get to discuss their research and look for connections to their own work. Lunch will be provided (registration requested).
