EEES Lunch

Weekly EEES Lunch provides an opportunity for members of the EEES graduate program to receive useful feedback from their peers during all phases of academic inquiry. Presenters are encouraged to share active research- when hypotheses, experiments, analyses, and interpretations remain malleable. Although EEES Lunch is open for all to present and share, graduate students must present once a year and are expected to attend all EEES Lunches. Learn more about the Philosophy of EEESLs.


EEES Lunches are held on Tuesdays throughout the Fall, Winter and Spring terms from 12:15-1:15 PM.
