Six professors from across colleges and departments spoke for eight minutes each on a variety of environmental and sustainability perspectives. Their presentations are available for to view:
- Beth Duckles, assistant professor of sociology, discussed "Looking Green and Being Green Using Sustainable Construction Practices."
- Kevin Gilmore, visiting assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, examined "Implementation of the Total Dissolved Solids Restrictions on Marcellus Shale Flowback Water."

These snaptalks were part of the Environmental Center's ongoing goal to build connections between faculty and community members with similar interests, foster the development of cross-disciplinary research, teaching, and activity, and broaden our understanding of nature and the environment.
