How to host a Speaker?
Any US college or university wishing to invite a GeoPRISMS speaker may apply before July 1, 2018. Please note that spots are limited as speakers are only available to visit approximately four institutions apiece. Institutions catering to the general public, or not currently involved in GeoPRISMS research, are strongly encouraged to apply. Applications from colleges and universities granting only undergraduate, or undergraduate and graduate degrees are welcome. Institutions may request a technical and/or public lecture. Public lectures outside of established geoscience departments (including libraries and museums) are encouraged with help from the GeoPRISMS Office to coordinate. The GeoPRISMS Office will bear the cost of airfare for DLP speakers and assist in coordinating off-site travel. Host institutions are responsible for the speaker’s local expenses (i.e. hotel and meals) for the duration of the visit. The GeoPRISMS Office has prepared a list of DLP Best Practices to guide institutions interested in hosting a DLP speaker. Please contact the GeoPRISMS Office if you have any questions.
