ESE Centennial Symposium & Tailgate

November 5, 2021 - November 6, 2021

The UNC Gillings Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering is hosting a Centennial Symposium and tailgating event on Homecoming weekend:

November 5–6, in person, on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus

  • November 5: We will hold the Centennial Symposium in Honor of Philip C. Singer, with a special dedication to Michael D. Aitken. Events will include an ESE Distinguished Alumni Award presentation and an L&L with the Distinguished Alum at the Carolina Brewery.
  • November 6: Tailgate with us at the UNC vs Wake Forest football game. If you’d like to attend the football game, purchase your tickets now before they’re sold out! (Attending the game is optional.) Because it will be a crowded Homecoming weekend, you will want to arrange accommodations as early as possible.

Help ESE celebrate 100 years of providing environmental solutions to the greatest public health challenges!

The Centennial Symposium celebrates the legacy of the late Dr. Philip C. Singer, a member of the School’s faculty from 1973 to 2011, a nationally renowned expert in water-quality issues and a member of the National Academy of Engineering. The Symposium will include a special dedication to the late Dr. Michael Aitken, who is remembered as a respected leader, scientist, mentor, teacher, advocate and ambassador.
