The Coastal Resilience Center manages multiple exchange programs that allow students in various disciplines to learn from our partner institutions through summer exchanges, hosting research teams from Minority Serving Institutions and guest lectures.

 

CRC researchers from Oregon State University, along with OSU students and University of Puerto Rico-Mayagüez students taking part in the SUMREX exchange program, test the strength of a model structure in the OH Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory in the summer of 2018.

SUMREX

The SUMmer Research EXperience, or SUMREX, matches students from CRC-funded education programs with CRC research projects. Students spend up to 12 weeks at the research project campus site working on CRC-funded work. This program has established key pipelines between our partners, including annual participation by University of Puerto Rico-Mayagüez engineering students  in the hydraulic lab tests at Oregon State University, in a project led by by PI Dr. Dan Cox.

Summer Research Team

CRC partners host faculty and students from Minority Serving Institutions for 10 weeks this summer as part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science & Technology Directorate (S&T)-facilitated Summer Research Team (SRT) program.

The DHS SRT program, administered by S&T’s Office of University Programs, is a summer internship that provides quality research experiences to early career faculty members and students attending a Minority Serving Institution in the United States and the 16 U.S. territories. The goal of the program is to foster relationships for long-term projects and enhance scientific leadership at MSIs in DHS-relevant research areas.

CRC partners have hosted teams from Benedict (S.C.) College, Norfolk State University, Florida A&M University and Elizabeth City State University.

RETALK

The CRC’s RETALK (short for Research Talks) program facilitates guest lectures from researchers at institutions hosting the Center’s education projects. The RETALK program has four objectives: Disseminate knowledge about CRC research partners and their work to students at CRC education partners; foster collaboration and integration among the Center’s projects; encourage interest among students in graduate studies at partner university programs; and strengthen the CRC (especially the SUMREX program) by building relationships between principal investigators.
