About the SAFS Graduate Student Invited Speaker Series:
The Graduate Student Invited Speaker event provides an exciting opportunity for SAFS graduate students to nominate and select a speaker to give a presentation in the school’s spring seminar series. The event was proposed by graduate students in 2007 as a way to contribute to and shape perspectives brought to the school via the seminar series. We seek experts in the fields of ecology, resource management, and conservation to provide insight into novel, constructive approaches to practical problems in aquatic and fishery sciences. Given the diversity of research conducted at SAFS, we are interested in the selected speaker addressing issues and challenges that resonate with the entire SAFS community. Additionally, we hope to be exposed to new tools and intellectual approaches that complement the diversity of methodologies in our department.

Each spring, graduate students are asked to nominate individuals they believe would provide a meaningful visit based on the above guidelines. A vote is held among the graduate students and the winning speaker is invited for the following spring. The event is spear-headed by several graduate students who work over the course of the year to organize the seminar, meetings with graduate students and faculty, and several social events.

This event is sponsored by the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences
