Sustainability Speaker Series

The University of South Florida Patel College Of Global Sustainability (PCGS) presents the Sustainability Speaker Series.

PCGS is pleased to continue our Speaker Series Program into the 2018 - 2019 academic year. The speaker series was established to create increased knowledge and awareness among our students about innovative sustainability practices in private and public organizations. The goal of the series is to host local, national, and international leaders to present on sustainability policies and practices. We have hosted NOAA, Duke Energy, Publix, and the Fall 2018 series will include Coca-Cola and Mosaic.
Please see the schedule below for the speakers.

Recognizing the importance of our students obtaining this valuable professional knowledge, PCGS is focused on the success of this program. This series does not only benefit PCGS students but the university as a whole by bringing in diverse speakers from across the world. Your support in the way of sponsoring our speaker series will have a profound impact on the success of our graduate students as they work to find solutions to current and future global sustainability challenges. Thank you for your support and investment in our student's education.

If you are interested in sponsoring the series, please contact Kelly Gaskell at kgaskell@usf.edu
