HUCE Events

A key component of the Center's mission is to foster linkages and connect people across the University with an interest in the environment. HUCE places a high priority on bringing faculty and students together with outside scholars via conferences and symposia, regular seminar and special lecture series, and informal student group meetings with visitors. HUCE co-sponsors seminars and events organized by faculty members elsewhere at the University, as well as weekly meetings of student-organized groups like the Energy Journal Club and the Climate Leaders Program. HUCE is also host to a variety of faculty-organized weekly events such as the Environmental History Working Group. All of these events have an academic purpose at their core and help to bridge an expanding environmental community at Harvard.
