March 20, 2012

This is a post in the STEMconnector™ Guest Blog Series, featuring Pranoti Asher, Manager of Education and Public Outreach at the American Geophysical Union.

“We invite you to attend a workshop being conducted this summer at the American Geophysical Union’s (AGU) Headquarters in Washington, DC, the Planning Workshop to Establish URECAS: Unique Research Experiences for two-year College faculty And Students. Attendees will discuss the development of a program within AGU to strengthen the role of two-year college Earth and space science students in the future workforce. Support to attend the meeting will be provided for approximately 30 two-year college Earth and space science faculty who are currently engaged in research experiences with their students or who have a strong interest in developing a research program with a nearby four-year institution. Also encouraged to apply are four-year college faculty who are currently partnering on research projects with two-year college faculty. A variety of expert speakers and panelists from two- and four-year schools, professional societies, and federal organizations will help frame and build discussion on best practices in and barriers to building and maintaining such research experiences for two-year college students.

 

For more information and to apply, visit http://urecas.agu.org/. The application deadline is April 2, 2012. If you have questions, contact principal investigators Pranoti Asher (pasher@agu.org) or Bethany Adamec (bhadamec@agu.org). Please share this invitation with your colleagues and networks.

 

This workshop is supported by the National Science Foundation Geosciences Directorate (Opportunities for Enhancing Diversity in the Geosciences award # 1201578).
