Events & Activities

MBL activities/MBL calendar
Information about MBL summer activities (summer courses schedule, evening seminars, Friday Evening Lectures, brown-bag lunches by Whitman Center Research Awardees, etc.) can be found on the MBL calendar at or by downloading the MBL app. Once you arrive on campus and have access to MBL’s Intranet (, you can submit an event right from the intranet calendar (see “submit course event” link on left hand side of page). It will come to the Communications Office for approval. You can designate on the form if it is a public event or internal only. Once it’s on the calendar, it will feed to the intranet calendar, public facing site events calendar, MBL app, and digital signage. This is the preferred way for the MBL to receive items for the calendar.

“Town Hall” meetings
Whitman Scientists are invited annually to attend Town Hall Meetings to discuss Whitman Center programs, issues, and future plans. Meetings are followed by a social event and will be announced at the beginning of summer by email.
