Student Network

NRESS coffee and doughnuts group


The NRESS Student Network aims to foster community across the highly interdisciplinary NRESS student body.  The Student Network coordinates professional and career development activities, as well as provides student support, guidance, and mentoring.  These actions are achieved through monthly student-sponsored lunches and morning coffee meetings, student talks, seminars, and annual social events.


The NRESS Student Network communicates to the NRESS student body through weekly/bi-weekly emails and newsletters created through the NRESS Program Office.

NRESS Social Science Meet-Ups

NRESS students working on social science-based research (or socioenvironmental combined research) gather monthly to discuss our research progress, questions, and challenges.  For more information, contact the NRESS Program Office.

NRESS Student Network Coordinators

Weekly NRESS Community Coffee and Donuts

Join colleagues (NRESS students, faculty and guests) every Friday morning from 9-10 a.m. (currently held via Zoom) for the NRESS Community Coffee Hour.  Join any time during the hour; 9:30 a.m. for announcements (NRESS events, share news of your own) and this week's trivia question!  Contact the NRESS Program Office for the link.

Hosted by​ the NRESS Student Network Team:  Jonathan Clark, Allison Herreid, Dylan Kelly, Thomas Muratore & Meaghan Shaw. 

Monthly NRESS Student Lunches

This academic year, the Student Network will again offer a lunch series for NRESS students.  These are great opportunities for new students to come learn and returning students to share their experiences and knowledge (tentatively scheduled as online events; if held in-person, lunch will be provided by NRESS!).

Coordinated Participation in Graduate School Events

Join NRESS peers and colleagues for presentation opportunities such as the Annual Graduate Research Conference and the Three Minute Thesis Competition!  Contact Student Networks leaders for more details!
