10th Annual GeoSymposium


Apr. 10, 2015, 8:30am to 6pm

Office/Remote Location

Auditorium and Lobby


The symposium is a student-run event, designed to provide graduate and undergraduate students with a valuable opportunity to present their research in a professional and supportive environment in which they can receive feedback from industry, government, and academic experts who attend.

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear keynote addresses from both Pat Mulroy (senior fellow for climate adaptation and environmental policy at UNLV’s Brookings Mountain West), and Tim Garfield (chief research geoscientist at ExxonMobil). Throughout the day, students will present their research through oral and poster presentations, followed by an afternoon award ceremony recognizing them for their research and academic achievements.

The day will conclude with a reception complete with food, beverages, and a silent auction to help support next year’s event.
