Event Times

Location: Unilever Lounge, 4th Floor of Sobey Building, SMU Campus

Each year at Homecoming, we invite alumni to return to the classroom to hear from one of our professors. This year, 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 $10 and includes a full breakfast.
