SCU to host 2012 AESS conference

Thursday, Jan. 12, 2012

Santa Clara University will host the national conference for the Association of Environmental Studies and Sciences (AESS) from June 21-24, 2012.  AESS is a professional organization that seeks to strengthen teaching, research, and service in environmental studies and sciences, and to improve communication across boundaries that too often divide the traditional academic disciplines.

In addition to standard conference fare such as keynote speakers, workshops, symposia, and poster sessions, the AESS conference will provide opportunities to visit local ecosystems and other sites of environmental interest. The conference will also include several events showcasing the contribution of the arts to environmental studies.
