The Annual Symposium recognizes the research and time many "K" seniors have devoted to the field of sustainability in the creation of their SIPs, and showcases to the community the breadth and depth of sustainability-related work going on at Kalamazoo College. It serves as an annual celebratory gathering for seniors to share and discuss their work, while making meaningful connections with those who share their passions. Students, faculty, staff, local alumni, parents, and members of the Kalamazoo community are invited to attend.
