Education & Community Outreach (ECO)
The Network Coordination Office (NCO) was awarded (#2129782(opens a new window)) by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to oversee the leadership of the NHERI program. The NCO is responsible for organizing the governance committees for determining the direction and policies of NHERI as well as ensuring the smooth scheduling of research completed under NHERI. Also within the NCO is the Education and Community Outreach (ECO) team who are charged with leading efforts to provide training programs and spread the message of the NHERI program throughout the hazards research community. The primary NCO administrative office is located at Purdue University, and the ECO team is located at University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). The committees of the NCO meet virtually with members drawn from multiple NHERI awardee and non-awardee institutions.
