Environmental Impacts Graduate Working Group

We are an interdisciplinary group of grad students, bridging social sciences, humanities, and STEM, to connect and collaborate on writing, researching, and communicating work that addresses environmental challenges and impacts. This student group is supported by a faculty-led group, Disproportionate Impacts of Environmental Challenges, headed by Dr. Kimberly Marion Suiseeya and Dr. Jennifer Dunn. If you are interested in being added to our email list or attending our working group meetings, please fill out this interest survey.

As a student-led group, we are growing the community of like-minded people interested in conducting interdisciplinary work related to the environment. This graduate group is an opportunity to extend the faculty-led Working Group’s work to include graduate students also interested in research related to the Disproportionate Effects of Environmental Change. We aim to support graduate students in efforts to build new collaborations and networks within and outside the academy.
