Undergraduate students are invited to attend the annual Undergraduate Sustainability Research and Education Expo. This event draws a wide variety of campus faculty seeking research assistants, educators seeking new students, and community leaders and local organizations seeking interns. The Expo is a great way for students to meet potential mentors and get involved in opportunities designed to broaden their research and educational experiences in energy, the environment, and other sustainability topics!

Sponsored by the Campus Coalition on Research and Education for Sustainability (members are the Environmental Change Initiative, ND Energy, Reilly Center, and the Minor in Sustainability). Questions may be directed to Barbara Villarosa, Rachel Novick, and Alex Gumm.
CREST is a core group of individuals affiliated with Notre Dame research initiatives and education programs who seek common ground on the topics of energy, environment, and sustainability. The primary goals of the coalition are to promote campus networking amongst faculty, postdoctoral, and student groups, to identify shared research interests within these various groups, to foster and build cross-college interactions and relationships, and to spur new or improved interdisciplinary research and classroom curricula.
