Council of Fellows
CIRES Council of Fellows is comprised of individuals with an outstanding record of achievement and ability in diverse areas of environmental sciences. They are primarily University faculty, research associates or government scientists who form the core and develop the direction of the interdisciplinary research conducted at CIRES. As a group, they personify the concept of cooperation that is the founding principle of NOAA's Cooperative Institute Program. Responsibilities of the Council include maintaining and revising the CIRES Bylaws; reviewing, discussing, and voting on the personnel matters; and analyzing and discussing CIRES programs and management of CIRES.
