Educational Goals/Objectives
ESE Education Program Vision

The primary goal is to make a measurable and documented difference in the numbers of underrepresented minorities at Elizabeth City State University and other HBCU/MI’s who pursue careers in geoscience related fields and the technical fields which support the geosciences. The proposal contains a strong student, faculty, curriculum enhancement, and evaluation component.  

The curriculum enhancement objectives involve revising two existing UNH courses designed to enhance the research capabilities of faculty research agenda and that of their students. The first course will orient the students in the latest information about earth systems science and remote sensing. The second course will involve the students in active research projects integrating earth systems science and remote sensing. Workshops are planned during which faculty will be guided in the delivery of both courses and in constructing include examples and exercises from their local ecosystems for use in the courses.  

The student involvement objectives are designed to encourage underrepresented minority students in STEM to consider academic and/or research careers in geosciences, and/or joining the workforce of expanding Earth science applications. The Remote Sensing Explorers Program will provide financial support and research training activities.
