News and Events


The ESC holds a number of events throughout the year aimed at increasing collaboration between members and providing opportunities for learning. In the fall, we host the Distinguished Ecologist Lecture Series (DELS) where internationally recognized ecologists present their research and visit with faculty and students. More information can be found at our DELS page. In the Spring, our students take center stage at the annual ESC Student Research Forum. Both graduate and undergraduate students are invited to participate in this poster forum. More information can be found on the ESC Student Research Forum page.

ESC Friday Coffee

Every Friday morning during the school year we hold a coffee hour at various locations across campus. We encourage graduate students and faculty to come and interact with each other with the purpose of facilitating scientific conversations. Specific times and locations are in the calendar invites, so please contact us about membership to receive notifications.
