Environmental Chemistry Colloquium (ECC)
Every summer we hold a colloquium where all graduate students present their current research in 15 minute talks. It's an exciting opportunity to learn about the research in the Environmental Chemistry department as well as a great chance to mingle outside of a lab setting. The ECC is always capped off with a delicious barbeque, specially catered by our very own faculty!
ECCXVII took place May 1-2, 2017 organized by Shira Joudan and Vera Kovacevic. Contact the 2018 organizers, Vera Kovacevic and Laura Stirchak for details about ECCXVIII.
