TheEnvironmental Management and Sustainability Graduate Student Research Symposium will take place on Thursday, Dec 7 from 6:30-9pm in Carter Auditorium. The symposium will feature MSEM graduate student research conducted over the last year on the following topics: seahorse population dynamics in Aransas Bay, ozone pollution before and after the Bastrop fire, heavy metal contamination in bridge run-off around the Edwards Aquifer, lead contamination monitoring in Travis County’s drinking water, and flow patterns in the Edwards Aquifer using a dye-tracing approach.
This event is free and open to the public, and there will be a reception with light snacks and refreshments to follow.
Many students (including 5 St. Edward’s U. grads since 2014) come into the University of Notre Dame’s ESTEEM Graduate Program in Entrepreneurship and Innovation feeling restless and boxed in by the career choices laid out in front of them, but full of energy to create a better world and make an impact. For this reason, ESTEEM emphasizes the action of entrepreneurship, not just the study of it. ESTEEM allows students with technical backgrounds to explore the world of business and entrepreneurship, learning how to combine their current skills with new ones to become leaders in their chosen fields.
