The focus of the symposium was on networking and community-building in order to explore how NCSU can most effectively respond to issues associated with global change. Organized by the Department of the Interior’s Southeast Climate Science Center in partnership with the Global Environmental Change and Human Well-being Faculty Cluster, the symposium received support from the Colleges of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Natural Resources, Sciences, and Engineering, and NCSU Office of Research, Innovation and Economic Development.
Who attended? All NCSU faculty, staff, postdoctoral associates, graduate students, and affiliates with an interest in topics related to global change were encouraged to participate. More than 200 individuals registered and participated in an agenda that included short introductions by faculty, poster sessions, and brainstorming discussions.
