The Baker Center Energy and Environment Forum is an opportunity for academics to share their research findings to a broad set of academics, researchers, and students from outside their own discpline but who have a common interest in environmental and energy issues. We invite four to six speakers each semester from fields such as ecology, economics, urban planning, atmospheric chemistry and sociology to present on occasional Thursdays from 1:00-2:30pm in the Baker Center's Toyota Auditorium.
