REU - Sustainable Land and Water Resources

We are now accepting applications for the 2015 Research Experience for Undergraduates on Sustainable Land and Water Resources.  

Application deadline:   March 2, 2015.
Program dates:  June 8 - August 14, 2015.
Visit  for more information and an application.

This innovative Research Experience for Undergraduates Program takes place in 3 locations:
  • On the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa reservation near Cloquet, MN
  • At Salish Kootenai College in Pablo, Montana
  • At St. Anthony Falls Laboratory, University of Minnesota, in Minneapolis, Minnesota
This REU introduces undergraduate students to interdisciplinary research on sustainable land and water resources that is essential for improving management practices. Students will work on one of three teams using an interdisciplinary team-oriented approach that emphasizes quantitative and predictive methods. Student projects will integrate the Earth-surface dynamics, geology, ecology, limnology and paleolimnology, and hydrology principles and techniques required for sustainable land and water management and restoration.

Teams: St. Anthony Falls Laboratory, University of Minnesota; Salish Kootenai College, Montana; Fond du Lac Reservation in northern Minnesota: An All-Team Gathering at the conclusion of the program will bring all teams together to celebrate their summer research in a research symposium, with talking circles to discuss research in a community context, and hands-on experiments in St. Anthony Falls Laboratory facilities.
