Environmental Breakfast Club

The Environmental Breakfast Club, now entering its 17th season, consists of more than 100 faculty and staff from all colleges at The University of Arizona, who share interests in natural resources and the environment. At a monthly session hosted by the College of Law, a speaker shares aspects of his or her current work. The sessions aim to appeal to those beyond the bounds of the speaker’s discipline. 

This forum enhances communication across departments and colleges, which is a critical aspect of the interdisciplinary approach of the Environmental Law, Science & Policy program.
