Connecting People and Ideas for Integrated Development


SUNY/CID Participates in Climate Science Academy

Students with tree core samples

Fifteen SUNY students from Purchase College, Farmingdale State College, and SUNY Sullivan came to the Purchase campus for a weekend this spring for the 2019 Partners for International Research and Education (PIRE) Academy. Faculty and staff mentors from the University at Albany (including SUNY/CID), Purchase College, and Columbia University collaborated to lead hands-on tree-ring field and lab work activities, educational workshops, and discussions that combined the issues of climate research and policy.
