We assist faculty across the UNC campus in engaging communities and designing impacts initiatives that are tailored to specific research interests and feasible given available funding. In addition to project implementation, we can provide grant-writing support, conduct project evaluation and administer learning assessments.
We provide professional development opportunities for teachers and public health professionals, as well as technical assistance for government agencies. Participants learn about emerging science, exchange ideas on creative ways to approach environmental science and health topics, and share tools and resources.
We offer a variety of opportunities for students, including year-long research experiences, summer science institutes and one-day workshops that explore environmental science and health topics. Opportunities are available for high school students, undergraduate students and graduate students.
