Weertman Symposium

Note from the Chair

Dear Friends,

We are very grateful that you could attend the symposium in honor of Julia and Hans. We appreciate the many heartfelt stories that highlighted the breadth and depth of their work, their commitment to scholarship, and their inspirational mentorship. Here at MSE we continue our mission to educate and mentor tomorrow’s global leaders, inspired by the Weertman’s example.

If you were unable to attend, you can watch footage for each session by following the links below. Photos from the symposium and reception can be found here. We hope you take this opportunity to stay in touch.
