Almost every week during the fall and spring semesters the EEB has a departmental seminar in which a member of the faculty invites a researcher to give a presentation about their work. Typically the department seminar is held on Thursdays at 4pm in BSP 130. Often the seminar presenter will be available on campus for one or two days prior to their talk, in order to meet with interested students and faculty by appointment. EEB department seminars sometimes alternate with seminars in the Edwin Way Teale Lecture Series, which occur less frequently. One departmental seminar per year is organized by the graduate students, who invite the speaker and arrange his or her schedule. The department also holds the Monday Evening Seminar periodically throughout the semester.
