BCSE Events

Each year, the Center for Sustainability & the Environment presents two signature, weekend-long events shining a light on sustainability and the environmental health of our region: the Susquehanna River Symposium and the Sustainability Symposium. We also host visiting speakers and interactive, educational events throughout the academic year.

Susquehanna River Symposium

Nov. 3-4, 2023

Since 2006, the annual Susquehanna River Symposium has connected students, scientists and engineers from throughout the Susquehanna River region. Participants share ideas about issues within the watershed and increase awareness of river health, environmental policy and sustainability issues facing the mid-Atlantic. In addition to scientific panels and keynote speakers, the event also features a student research poster competition, open to college and university students from throughout the region.
