About the SAFS Graduate 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 our 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.
