Posted: September 14, 2017

The Biology Department, the Great Lakes Center, and the graduate Great Lakes Ecosystem Science (GLES) programs are collaborating to present a weekly seminar this semester. Each seminar will be held in the Bulger Communication Center, Room W, from 4:00 to 5:15 p.m.

“We invite everyone from the campus community to attend,” said Kelly Frothingham, coordinator of the GLES programs and chair of the Geography and Planning Department. “This semester, the series presents topics that reflect the ongoing work in each department.”
