Expanding Public Engagement with Science and Environment

Public Lectures and Events

Metcalf Institute’s public lectures, author events and film screenings focus on a wide range of science, environmental and public policy topics. All lectures are free and open to the public.

The Annual Public Lecture Series held in June brings top scientists, journalists, and policy experts to the University of Rhode Island to talk about current issues in environmental research, media coverage, and how science influences public policy. The lectures, held at the University of Rhode Island, run concurrently with the Annual Science Immersion Workshop for Journalists.
