On October 11 and 12, 2012, the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources hosted the Twenty-Ninth Annual Graduate Symposium in the George D. Aiken Center. Following a welcome by Interim Dean Jon Erickson, twenty master's students in the second year of their program presented their research to over 75 audience members. Attendees were allowed to ask probing questions of the presenters after the presentations.

Research topics covered a wide range of natural resources issues — from environmental planning and management and human dimensions in environmental management to water resource, forestry, and wildlife sciences. A reception in the Aiken Solarium on Friday night concluded the symposium.
