Environmental Sciences: An Interdisciplinary Approach Toward Global Innovation
20th Anniversary of the Annual Environmental Joint Campus Conference (JCC)
Since 1998, the Environmental Joint Campus Conference (JCC) has been an annual event that helps bring together graduate students and faculty from three programs: the Environmental Sciences Program at Oregon State University, the Environmental Sciences and Management Program at Portland State University, and the Environmental Studies Program at the University of Oregon.
The conference creates an opportunity for graduate students and faculty from each of the three programs to present their diverse research interests to a larger community of environmental scholars. Presentations and posters given at the JCC generate discussions that span the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.
The all-day conference was held on Friday May 18, 2018 in Corvallis, and featured Cristina Eisenberg, Chief Scientist at Earthwatch Institute, as keynote speaker setting the conference’s theme: “Environmental Sciences: An Interdisciplinary Approach toward Global Innovation”.
