The Spring 2017 NRES Seminar Series featured guest presentations by four K-State faculty. Special thanks to John Briggs (Biology and Konza Prairie Biological Station), Doug Goodin (Geography), Kim Hiller (Apparel, Textiles, and Interior Design), and Jennifer Vallenga (Theatre) for their engaging and though-provoking discussions. The talks from each of the spring presenters can be viewed on the NRES YouTube channel in the NRES Seminar Series playlist.
The seminar series helps us achieve our student learning outcomes by expanding students broad-based knowledge of natural resources/environmental science and by illustrating the commonalities (and differences) in academic perspectives for studying and solving contemporary natural resources issues.
This series, which continues to grow in popularity since its inception in Spring 2014, is focused on undergraduate students and was established to help build a sense of community, an appreciation for the breadth and depth of issues and approaches, and awareness of current research in natural resources and environmental science fields.
