On March 25, 2008, Dr. Linda Hayden, Director of the Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Education and Research (CERSER) and Dr. Darnell Johnson, Chair of the Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) Math and Computer Science Department, attended the National Science Foundation Science Technology Centers site visit for the Center of Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) located at The University of Kansas. ECSU is a part of a team of researchers from six universities conducting research to achieve a better understanding of the mass balance of the polar ice sheets and its contribution to global climate change.

Research students Unquiea Wade, Tiwana Walton, MyAsia Reid, Bryce Carmichael, Wanda-Marie Carey, Vernon Brown, Justin Deloatch, Chelsea Goins, and Chelsea Vick joined Dr. Hayden and Dr. Johnson in Kansas. Jerome Mitchell, a recent graduate of ECSU and part of the KU Doctoral Program, spent time with the students.
