DENIN Symposium:  Environmental institute to hold second research symposium Jan. 12

Faculty and students from across the University of Delaware are welcome to attend the second Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN) Research Symposium on Thursday, Jan. 12, in Clayton Hall.

The symposium will introduce faculty with environmental interests who are new to the University of Delaware and to DENIN, with an emphasis on building a community that is truly interdisciplinary and University-wide.

“One thing we’ve realized in the first two years of DENIN’s existence is that environmental interest and expertise extends very broadly across the University,” said Don Sparks, director of DENIN. “At the same time, the agencies that typically fund scientific research are increasingly requiring the integration of social sciences, ethics, communication and education into research projects. DENIN’s symposium provides a forum for people to learn what others with environmental interests are doing right here at UD.” (full article)
