Sustainability Expo


Location: Jordan Hall of Science Galleria

The Sustainability Expo (previously titled Undergraduate Sustainability Research & Education Expo) has been expanded to provide all students (undergraduate and graduate) with information and valuable resources about professional development opportunities in the areas of energy, the environment, and sustainability studies.

New this year, employers on campus for the Career Fair will be invited to participate, so students may seek internships and potential job openings outside of the local area, in addition to research with faculty, major/minor/certificate programs, and community outreach and services, which are all important to enhancing graduate and undergraduate student education.   

STUDENTS:  Mark your calendar and check back often for an updated list of participating employers, researchers, educators, and community leaders who will be eager to discuss their specific programs in energy, the environment, and sustainability studies with you at the Expo. 

PARTICIPANTS You should REGISTER HERE by January 18 to reserve your spot at the Expo, so you can have the unique opportunity to discuss your specific programs in energy, the environment, and sustainability studies with interested undergraduate and graduate students at Notre Dame.

We look forward to seeing you at the Expo!
