IT-ROCS is a 10-week NSF-sponsored Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program at The City College of New York, a CUNY campus located in NYC. This program will support nine (9) students each summer as part of a comprehensive summer research program focused on climate science and the impacts of climate change on Earth’s ecosystems, coupled with an education outreach component in partnership with local non-profit organizations.
Students will work with faculty mentors in ecology, evolution, climatology, remote sensing, geography, biochemistry, and computer science. Project topics range from the impact of recent climate change on air and water quality in the greater NY region to the study of evolutionary responses of biodiversity to past climate change to help foresee future trajectories.
IT-ROCS combines a research experience with work in community programs focused on climate-related environmental justice and biodiversity education. Participants will engage with NYC communities through partner nonprofit organizations. Some examples include:
