Celebrating the 1st year for UVM’s EEEB group (Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology)

The EEEB group (Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology) gathered for a potluck last Friday to celebrate spring and the end of a very successful first year!

Here are some of the highlights from this year:

– Faculty and student participation in academic talks from 7 different academic units (Biology, Plant Biology, Rubenstein School, Plant and Soil Sciences, Gund Institute, Animal Science, Math and Statistics).

  • 39 talks from faculty and students
  • 1 professional development forum
  • New reading/study groups linking students and researchers across departments (Foundations in Ecology, Practical Computing for biologists)
  • And perhaps new collaborations?

– Social events that brought people together (each event 50-100 people):

  • September 5, 2014 – UVM Natural History Museum hosted a bbq
  • December 5, 2014 – Holiday social hour at ArtsRiot
  • May 1, 2015  – Spring bbq potluck, hosted by the Rubenstein Ecosystem Sciences Lab (pictures below)
