ERIE Outreach

The ERIE program is conducted in close partnership with Western New York and regional communities, reflecting the strong commitment of the University at Buffalo to environmental stewardship, as expressed through its Greener Shade of Blue initiative.

In addition to completing a professional internship with one of the many regional partnering organizations, doctoral Trainees are encouraged to pursue research projects that are connected to ongoing regional restoration projects. IGERT Trainees also participate in K-12 science education through the Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Partnership with Buffalo Public Schools, spearheaded by Professor Joseph Gardella, which includes Buffalo's Native American Magnet School. To promote the long-term sustainability of its various programs, ERIE encourages its supporters to contribute to its newly established scholarship fund.
