Green Speakeasy


The Green Speakeasy events were created in 2014 to allow opportunity for faculty and graduate students from throughout the university to meet and learn about each other’s research areas with the goal of encouraging future collaboration and interdisciplinary work. If you have ideas for future speakers, please share them at mcsi@pitt.edu.
