The Sustainability, Energy and Environment Complex is located on the east side of the CU-Boulder campus at the intersection of Foothills Parkway and Colorado Ave. at 4001 Discovery Drive. 

Free parking is available in the north and south lots adjacent to the building.

Speakers at the event include:

  • Chancellor Philip DiStefano
    • Provost Russell Moore
    • Vice Chancellor for Research Terri Fiez
    John Stevenson, dean of the Graduate School
    Jim White, director of the Institute for Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR)

CU said SEEC will bring together under a single roof some of the best minds in environmental and sustainability research at CU-Boulder and in federal labs.

The new 115,000 square-foot LEED-certified building will house shared labs featuring a new generation of analytical instruments and synthesis capabilities not available elsewhere on CU-Boulder’s campus.

An adjoining 289,000 square-foot space has been refurbished for teaching, programs, collaborative work and community connections.
