Undergraduate Research & Education Expo


Undergraduate students at Notre Dame are invited each year to the Undergraduate Sustainability Research and Education Expo. Held in late January, the expo provides a one-stop-shop for students to learn about research and educational opportunities in energy, the environment, and other sustainability studies, matching their interests with programs at Notre Dame and throughout the local community.
