Howard Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy
Interdisciplinary Discussion Forum for Energy and the Environment
The Baker Center Discussion 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 roughly six speakers each semester from fields such as ecology, economics, urban planning, atmospheric chemistry and sociology
to present on occasional Thursdays at 3:30pm in the Baker Center's Toyota Auditorium.
