The Eos Project supports innovative initiatives at Vanderbilt University to promote understanding of urgent environmental issues and social action-pathways to respond to the challenges of climate change. The goal is to energize attention to environment/society conerns in diverse disciplines and campus constituencies. The project organizes programming and offers small grants and fellowships to support faculty and students to develop the vision, knowledge, leadership skills, and networks needed to address pressing problems at the intersections of ecology and social justice, where the well-being of human communities is inseparable from the well-being of more-than-human life-worlds.

Summer 2016

Thanks for your interest in the Vanderbilt Eos project. We are taking the summer off but will resume programing in the fall. Check back in August for a new schedule of events for the 2016-17 academic year!

The Eos Project takes its name from the Greek Titaness who brings the dawn of a new day. Eos (Aurora in Latin) was the sister of Helios (Sun) and Selene (Moon), the offspring of Hyperion and Theia, divinities of light, vision, and knowledge of the cosmos. As the rosy-fingered Titan goddess of dawn, Eos is an apt inspiration for invigorating environmental energies at a university located near the Parthenon in Nashville, the “Athens of the South.”
