The Program on the Global Environment (PGE) hosts events for students and the broader environmental community. Offerings include public lectures and panel discussions, student-focused open houses and information sessions, study breaks, lunch and learns, undergraduate research presentations, and career events featuring alumni and environmental professionals.

PGE also collaborates regularly on events with on- and off-campus partners, this quarter including the faculty working group for the Committee on Environment, Geography and Urbanization (CEGU), Chicago Studies, the Chicago Center for Contemporary Theory (3CT), the Nicholson Center for British Studies, and the Chicago Ornithological Society.

Spring 2022

In-person events are subject to change based on public health conditions. See individual listings for program details and registration information.
All events are open to all invitees regardless of vaccination status. Because of ongoing health risks to the unvaccinated, those who are unvaccinated are expected to adopt the risk mitigation measures advised by public health officials (masking and social distancing, etc.). Public dining may not be safe for all and carries a risk for contracting COVID-19, particularly for those unvaccinated. Participants will not know the vaccination status of others, including venue staff, and should follow appropriate risk mitigation measures.
