SJSU Wildfire Interdisciplinary Research Center (WIRC) receives a Community Funding Award
Congratulations to the SJSU Wildlife Interdisciplinary Research Center (WIRC), recipient of a Community Project Funding award in the amount of $1.15 million dollars for their efforts to improve the environment and address the impacts of climate change.
“This is going to be transformative for our faculty and students in terms of what we can accomplish,” said Clements. “And the members will benefit because they will get access to research results before anyone else. Our students will get to interact with industry and government members, and members get to interact with our talent pool.”
The ground breaking, multi-disciplinary collaboration of faculty from different scientific specialties is an exciting new development in the ongoing search for better ways to understand and manage wildfires.
Congratulations to Meteorology and Climate Science lecturer faculty member Alicia Mullens, recipient of the College of Science Award for Teaching Excellence!
