NOAA CCME will host a Cooperative Science Center (CSC) session highlighting the successes of the CSCs and other educational partnership programs.
CSC alumni, students, and faculty are invited to submit abstracts for this session.
Education partnerships foster participation of traditionally underrepresented groups into higher education and eventually into the STEM workforce. For example, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Educational Partnership Program with Minority Serving Institutions funds four cooperative science centers that provide research internships, NOAA mentorship, and professional development on coastal, ocean and atmospheric topics. This session invites contributions describing education partnership programs and initiatives that broaden participation in coastal and marine science; and original contributions of research resulting from education partnership programs in the topics related to climate adaptation and mitigation, weather ready nation, healthy oceans, and resilient coastal communities and economies.
