CIRES faculty at the University of Colorado at Boulder teach courses in their academic departments on a wide range of subjects. Since 1967, our faculty have supervised the research of hundreds of students and graduates who are now in environmental science and research positions in academia and industry, in the United States and around the world. Our university science partners include colleagues and collaborating departments, which offer graduate certificates in many CU-Boulder programs. To promote student scholarship and research excellence, we support graduate education fellowships.
The CIRES Education Outreach Program builds bridges between CIRES research and educators, communicators, students, and scientists. Programs for educators include professional development related to cutting edge research. Programs for students include the National Ocean Sciences Bowl, afterschool activities for students underrepresented in science, and fellowships for graduate students who participate in the National Science Foundation-funded K-12 project. Programs for scientists include climate workshops, support for education activities, and geosciences research proposal preparation assistance.
