The Conservation Biology program is an interdisciplinary community of students, faculty, and conservation professionals. This graduate student-led group provides a graduate certificate program, and organizes a reading group (fall semester) and seminar series (spring semester). The reading groups and seminars promote discussion and communication among students and faculty, and are open to anyone in the community. These events provide students with the opportunity to make connections between their own research, current issues in the field of conservation biology, and the work of other graduate students and faculty members. Generally, the reading group and seminar series are organized around a semester-long theme or topic of relevance to conservation biology.
