The Sustainability Expo has been moved to the fall!
This new time frame aligns with Notre Dame’s Fall Career Fair, providing a unique opportunity for employers, researchers, and educators to engage with undergraduate and graduate students at the University. Students will explore professional development opportunities and seek career advice from exhibitors who will share information about their research projects, academic and experiential learning programs, internships, job openings, and other resources in the areas of energy, the environment, and sustainability studies.
Questions about participant registration should be directed to Barbara Villarosa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
