Dear Fellow CUR’ers:

 

In addition to my Admin. post re: Undergraduate Research, I am also PI on Clark Univ.’s NSF REU Site program, called "Human-Environment Regional Observatory (HERO)."

 

**Applications for the 8-week summer 2011 program are due Mon Feb 14 (all materials can be emailed to me).**

 

Materials are found at our URL: http://hero.clarku.edu

 

We study the causes, patterns, and consequences of changes in forest and urban land uses, using an inter-disciplinary approach that includes social science (eg, using interviews), geographical information science (eg, using remote sensing/GIS), and landscape ecology (eg, using forest mensuration). We spend a lot of time on professional development skills, too.

 

For the past 7 years, our students have had a lot of fun in this summer experience. We hope you will show our URL to your students! Many thanks in advance for passing this info along.

 

 

Best, Colin Polsky
