Environmental Science, Policy and Management (ESPM) Graduate Research Symposium 2007


For the first time graduate students in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy & Management (ESPM) at the University of California, Berkeley, have come together to organize a Graduate Research Symposium. This one day event will take place on Saturday, April 28, 2007, at Mulford Hall on the University of California, Berkeley. The goals of this one day event are:
a) to allow graduate students in ESPM to present their work and network with potential employers in a professional setting; b) to showcase the research and community activities undertaken by ESPM graduate students to the Bay Area community and create links between the public and ESPM graduate students; and c) to familiarize underrepresented groups within the Department and the UC with scientific research and provide opportunities for collaboration among students with different ethnic backgrounds.

Additionally, the symposium aims to expose other departments and universities to the strength and breadth of graduate student research within ESPM, and to raise awareness of scientific research and policy issues regarding Climate Change (the theme of this year's symposium). We would like to make this symposium an annual event that will not only give ESPM graduate students the opportunity to present their research in a professional setting to an interdisciplinary audience, but will create a forum to raise awareness of environmental and social issues and the research supporting those issues for graduate students at UC Berkeley and other universities.

The symposium will feature presentations by ESPM students on topics ranging from species invasions to climate change to environmental justice. It will also include a lunchtime poster session by graduate students. Professor Gretchen Daily, particularly outstanding in her field, is invited to present a keynote lecture on the theme of Climate Change. In addition, three outstanding faculty members from ESPM will be selected to present a panel at the end of the day, featuring their research on different aspects of Climate Change. We will also have an optional workshop at lunch time called "Taking ESPM into Action" for interested participants to explore environmental activism. We will end the day with a potluck reception to provide an opportunity for social interaction among participants.
