Boreas Community Hours are networking events that give students the opportunity to develop relationships with peers from across the University while learning from established and emerging environmental leaders about the challenges and opportunities of creating change. These events are open to all University of Minnesota graduate, professional students, and postdocs. Boreas believes in the power of seeing the potential in one another – and re-envisioning problems as opportunities through bold, stimulating and challenging conversations.
Boreas is a complement to any program – and a coach on your career path – providing space for the reflection and integration needed to take on today’s challenges. So join us. Learn new skills, meet like-minded people – and jump into changing the world.
