AMS Climate Studies Diversity Project Course Implementation Workshop for Qualifying Faculty (Apply by March 15)

Short Description:

(Apply by March 15; May 19-24, 2013, Washington, D.C.)
The American Meteorological Society has partnered with Second Nature, administrator of the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, to implement the AMS Climate Studies course at 100 eligible, minority-serving institutions (MSIs) over a 5-year period. As part of this NSF-supported Diversity Project, AMS is recruiting 25 MSI faculty for the May Course Implementation Workshop. Faculty will be trained to offer the climate course and will hear presentations from top-level NASA, NOAA, and university scientists. The AMS Climate Studies course was developed and pilot tested with NASA Support. All expenses are paid for those selected to attend the workshop, and the AMS Climate Studies license fee is waived for the first two years the course is offered.
