SERI regularly hosts guests speakers as part of our SERI Seminar and Talking Sustainability colloquium series.

Guest presenters discuss recent, innovative, and ongoing research on environment and sustainability in relation to education. Talks take place at SERI in the College of Education and online (through Webex).  Recordings of many previous presentations are available on SERI’s YouTube channel.
