NRESS Student Network

NRESS BBQ Student Social Gathering outside James Hall


The NRESS Student Network aims to foster community across the highly interdisciplinary NRESS student body.  The Student Network coordinates professional and career development activities, as well as provides student support, guidance, and mentoring.  These actions are achieved through monthly student-sponsored lunches and morning coffee meetings, student talks, seminars, and annual social events.


The NRESS Student Network communicates to the NRESS student body through weekly/bi-weekly emails and NRESS Student Network MyCourses.  You can also see events scheduled on the NRESS Events Calendar.

NRESS Social Science Meet-Ups

NRESS students working on social science based research (or socioenvironmental combined research) gather monthly to discuss our research progress, questions, and challenges. Please contact Lindsey Williams with any questions.
