Dr. Biardi is also actively involved in initiatives for science students on campus, including service as President of the Fairfield University Chapter of Sigma Xi, and service learning opportunities in watershed ecology for undergraduate students. He is also involved in sustainability initiatives on campus, including the Program on the Environment, the Faculty Committee on Sustainability, and the Campus Sustainability Committee.
