UCCRI Speed Networking EventInterdisciplinary Conservation.png

UCCRI held its first interdisciplinary conservation speed networking event at the Pitt Building.  We had a wide number of disciplines including Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, English, History & Philosophy of Sciences, Geography, Social and Biological Anthropology, Veterinary Medicine, Plant Sciences, Economics, Psychology, Land Economy and Zoology. Great mix of people and discussions and we hope the first of many more conservation networking events.
