CRC exchange programs
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.
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 PI Dr. Dan Cox.
