Upcoming Symposia


Virtual Fall Symposium

Resiliency & Change | October 12-14, 2021

Dates: October 12, 13 and 14, 2021
Time: 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM CDT

As our universities see a rapid return to pre-COVID activity, EH&S professionals find themselves at the brink of change. The goal of this program is to capture the shifts in thinking and working, now with higher stakes involved. From changes to laboratory inspections, to the ergonomics of shared (hotel) spaces, EH&S professionals find themselves balancing risks in a new paradigm. Let’s share the best practices, learning tools, and lessons learned so that we can pass on resilience.

Past Symposia

Virtual Spring Symposium

Collaboration | April 27-28, 2021

University EHS professionals collaborate on things all the time with many different stakeholders on many different areas of their work - from internal campus departments, schools within the universities, other universities, high schools, and industry. We do this because we learn early in our EHS careers that collaboration is at the heart of what we do and everyone involved in safety anywhere believes in sharing knowledge so all everyone is safe on the job wherever that is.

We will consider how to incorporate and encourage effective training and communication methods at our institutions, share best practices, and learn how we can better collaborate with each other, our students, and our researchers.
