Sustainability is a core value on campus and within R&DE Student Housing. The R&DE Student Housing Sustainability Programs Office collaborates with students and staff to foster behavior change, reduce energy and water consumption and waste production in our residences, and to integrate long-term sustainable thinking into how we operate. The Coordinator will support the Office’s goals and report directly to the Sustainability and Utilities Program Manager.
The Research Symposium represents one of the GSC’s core missions: to promote communication between disciplines and across the schools. This is a great opportunity for graduate students to develop and hone their public speaking skills. It will challenge you to discuss your research with an audience of diverse academic backgrounds and allow the Tufts community to appreciate the extent of scholarly work that takes place here. The theme of this year’s symposium is effective communication. You can chose to present in one or more of the three different sessions: 15-minute presentations, 5-minute presentations, and a poster session.
We are the Harvard College Conservation Society, and we would like to invite you to attend our Job Networking Fair on Saturday March 5th, 2016. The purpose of this fair will be to connect Harvard University and other Boston-based students interested in careers in conservation with each other, and with scientists and conservationists from NGO’s such as the Nature Conservancy, Conservation International, the Oceanic Society, and Women for Wildlife.
The fair will have three major components:
- Talks and panel discussion centered around presentations by women from the ‘Women for Wildlife’ network, accomplished biologists and conservationists, and representatives from major international NGO’s.
- Discussions in small classroom-type settings, for students Boston-wide interested in pursuing jobs or summer internships in the conservation field.
- A networking lunch with information distribution for groups interested in giving out contact information and or work application opportunities.
Let us know if members of your group are interested in the event so we can be sure to expect the right number of people, and also whether you would be interested in reserving a table for your group at the reception.
