All SEWSS activities have been canceled due to the university's switch to an online summer session.


The following activities are open to all SEWSS students. We are offering workshops to assist students in working to Stanford's standards in writing and presentations. Field trips provide students with a visual and interactive experience with environmental projects and technologies. The Keynote Seminar is our inspirational centerpiece that shows the cross-disciplinary scope of the environmental field.

Space on field trips and in workshops is limited. The Central Energy Facility Tour will prioritize students enrolled in CEE 107S/207S. All other limited activities will be filled on a first-come basis, and sign-up will close when all spots are filled.

Links for sign-up will be added in early June 2020.
