Join UW-Green Bay experts for the first Phoenix Forum Virtual Speaker Event
Eco U: The Next 50 Years, Thursday, Jan. 21, 2021 from 3 to 4 p.m.
After its founding in 1965, UW-Green Bay rapidly gained a national reputation as a leader in the emerging environmental movement, even being dubbed Eco-U in the 1970s. More than 50 years later, UW-Green Bay maintains strong academic programs focused on the environment, continues to conduct important environmental research, maintains natural areas on campus and in the region, and has many new opportunities on the horizon to begin the next 50 years. This presentation will provide an update on environmental related curriculum and initiatives at UW-Green Bay, including those that are part of Natural and Applied Science (NAS), the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity, the Environmental Management and Business Institute (EMBI), while also introducing plans for a National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR). Please join us in learning more about your Eco U.
Speakers are Dean of the College of Science, Engineering and Technology, John Katers and CSET faculty Mike Draney, Bob Howe, Emily Tyner, Kevin Fermanich, and John Arendt.
Once registered, an event link will be emailed to you the day of the event.
