WHAT
TheĀ Michigan University-wide Sustainability and Environment Conference (MUSE) is an inaugural conference and workshop aimed at bringing together the immense array of sustainability and environment-related research ongoing at the University of Michigan. A preliminary program is now available to review.

WHEN & WHERE
MUSE 2017 will be held February 9-10, 2017 in Ann Arbor at the University's Palmer Commons.

WHO
MUSE will bring together University leadership, faculty, fellows, and graduate students for a mixture of interdisciplinary lectures, panel discussions, poster sessions, and network- and skill-building activities. Opportunities will be provided to present both early-stage and final findings from research. Participation among researchers at all stages of their careers (early to senior) will allow new opportunities for collaboration, mentorship, and learning about new developments in fields relevant to your work.

WHY
The purpose of the conference is to foster connections and new collaborations across the broad suite of sustainability and environment-related research at the University of Michigan. We welcome participation from those advancing knowledge through work in the humanities and the social, physical, natural, and engineering sciences. Faculty, research fellows, and graduate students are encouraged to attend.
HOW
MUSE is spearheaded by a group of PhD students from the SNRE, CLASP, EEB, Psychology, Political Science, Nursing, and Communication Studies. Funding is made possible by SNRE. The Graham Institute for Sustainability, Planet Blue, and numerous other campus programs and initiatives have provided logistical and outreach support to make this event possible.
