Save the Date: Libby Lecture Tue. April 10, 2018 at 4 pm
April 10 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Noelle Eckley Selin will be giving the annual Libby Lecture in Resource Policy on Tuesday, April 10th at 4 pm in the McIntire Room of the Buchanan Alumni House. A reception featuring refreshments and food will begin immediately preceding the lecture at 3:30 pm directly outside the McIntire Room in Leadership Hall.
Dr. Selin’s talk will focus on her work as an Associate Professor in the Institute for Data, Systems and Society and the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Her research uses atmospheric chemistry modeling and interdisciplinary methods to inform decision-making on air pollution, climate change and hazardous substances such as mercury.
Dr. Selin will describe multiple partnership and engagement models for doing research in ways that inform people making decisions about environmental policy in local, state, and federal contexts. This talk will be of interest to those who are working to connect science with decision making to inform policy and will provide the audience with tangible examples and engagement strategies. For more information on Dr. Selin’s work, please visit her website.
Please save the date for this event and help us get spread the word by sharing with your colleagues. If you are teaching this semester, we also encourage you to let your students know about the talk, and consider assigning attendance for extra credit. Keep an eye on the Libby Lecture website for more details about this talk, and other promotional materials in the next several weeks too.
We will be setting up times for faculty and students to meet with Dr. Selin while she is on campus, so please let us know if you’d like to meet with her and if you have any questions.
