PEI created the Faculty Seminar Series in 2015 as a public venue for senior faculty to discuss their research in the context of environmental science and current events. Each semester features four faculty seminars on topics that include sea-level rise, climate change, carbon sequestration, green technology, renewable energy and sustainability, biodiversity, infectious diseases and global health, urban infrastructure, environmental history and humanities, environmental chemistry and ocean biogeochemistry.

Seminars begin at 12:30 p.m. in Guyot Hall, Room 10. Lunch is served at noon in the Guyot Atrium. All lectures are open to the public. Video of the seminars are made available on PEI’s website.
