About this event

University of Chicago undergraduate students are invited to join faculty members in the Division of Social Sciences and the College for an open discussion of their proposal for a Committee on Environment, Geography and Urbanization (CEGU). Current undergraduates from all Collegiate divisions and majors are welcome.

CEGU is envisioned as a robust interdisciplinary platform for critical thinking, advanced research, and innovative pedagogy on the societal and spatial dimensions of climate change, biodiversity loss, and environmental transformation. Its faculty and students will seek to investigate and respond to the environmental crises of our time not only by advancing climate change awareness and environmental literacy, but by actively centering questions about climate change and socio-environmental interdependencies in the epistemologies, conceptual frameworks, analytic methods, data sources, and normative foundations of social research at large. Further details will be shared during the event.

A separate forum for PhD students will take place on April 8. Register here for the CEGU Graduate Student Forum. Register here for the CEGU Graduate Student Forum.
