I act as the CESU liaison to the 37 Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) to identify environmental science resources/research/opportunities for mutual collaborative work. Most of the 37 TCUs maintain research and academic programs in environmental science, forestry, hydrology and natural resources management. Potential Partnering Opportunities: community-based research, professional development programs and student internships.
