NHERI Summer Institute Goes Virtual
Given NHERI site closures and travel bans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual Summer Institute for Early Career Faculty has been rescheduled as a virtual event.
The free NHERI Workshop for Early Career Faculty takes place online June 29 and 30, 2020.
The Zoom-based program introduces early career faculty, graduate students and others to NHERIs experimental facilities and the faculty experts who manage them.
The day includes an overview of the NSF proposal process by Program Director Joy Pauschke and a panel of early career faculty researchers. Participants can also schedule one-on-one meetings with facility representatives on day two.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, NHERIs 2020 Research Experiences for Undergraduates program is rescheduled for next year.
Nevertheless, the Education and Community Outreach committee is planning a one-day summer session for prospective REU students.
The Zoom-based program will include introductions to NHERI research facilities and a meet and greet with REU alumni. Watch your email for details. Questions about NHERIs summer outreach programming? Contact Karina Vielma: firstname.lastname@example.org
