“Envisioning Environment at UVM” – Announcing Public Forums

 

The Envisioning Environment committee has prepared preliminary plans for conducting a campus-wide inventory of environmentally-engaged outreach, research, and education. This inventory will be developed through several formats, with information to be collected and posted on the provost’s web site for public access.  These formats include:

1) weekly public forums open to all (Wednesdays 4-6pm, see below for schedule)

2) a campus-wide faculty survey to identify environmental research efforts, resource needs, and creative ideas

3) meetings with the Council of Deans and provost’s office

4) two public forums for environmental graduate and undergraduate students (dates and locations TBD)

5) a web site with relevant committee documents and posted program summaries

The weekly public forums will be held on Wednesdays 4:00-6:00pm; topics and locations are listed below.  All are welcome to attend. The committee is identifying potential presenters for each of the session topics.  Presentations will be based on materials prepared for the website, with Q&A to follow with the committee.  More detailed agendas will be available on the Envisioning Environment website on the provost’s page.  Please contact the co-chairs if you wish to be considered for any of these sessions (skaza@uvm.edu or bwemple@uvm.edu.)
