Location: Private Dining Room (Loyola 298), SMU Campus 

To celebrate the 5th anniversary of the School of Environment, we are presenting a lecture by Dr. Cathy Conrad, Professor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies and Coordinator of the Bachelor of Environmental Studies. 

The Bachelor of Environmental Studies degree is an interdisciplinary program providing exciting opportunities to draw upon social sciences, humanities, and natural sciences to develop solutions to complex environmental challenges. The Bachelor of Environmental Studies degree is a part of the Saint Mary's University School of Environment, connecting students, faculty and the community to the hub for environmental education, research and outreach at Saint Mary’s University.


Climate change research is very active at SMU. Across all disciplines and faculties, we have researchers and students undertaking critical research in this field. Dr. Conrad will bring her research from the front lines of climate change in rural West Africa home to SMU with the stories of how people's lives are being gravely impacted by the climate crisis. 

The lecture will be followed by a short Q&A. 

Please note that this event is free. Coffee and tea will be provided. We encourage guests to bring their lunch with them.
