History of EPP/MSI

About NOAA EPP/MSI Cooperative Science Centers: Through national competition, NOAA EPP/MSI funding supports development of a diverse science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) future workforce that directly supports NOAA's mission and increases opportunities for innovation and U.S. global competitiveness. The goal of NOAAEPP/MSI is to increase the number of students from underrepresented minority communities who are educated, trained and graduated in fields that directly support NOAA's mission.

Four Educational Partnership Program with Minority Serving Institutions - Cooperative Science Centers (EPP/MSI-CSC) support NOAA's mission by educating graduate and undergraduate students in Atmospheric, Remote Sensing, Marine and Coastal Ocean Sciences. Each Cooperative Science Center is headquartered at a doctoral-degree granting Minority Serving Institution, and involves multiple partnerships with academic institutions across the United States.

NOAA-CREST is a partnership of CCNY, Hampton University (HU), and University of Puerto Rico in Mayaguez (UPRM), University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), and California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA). For more details visit NOAA EPP.
