Students are an integral component of the Coastal Hazards Center’s mission.
While CHC-E fosters curriculum concentrations, bachelor’s and master’s degree, CHC-R employs students as research interns.
Each summer CHC-R hires a student from one of the minority serving partner institutions to work alongside a Principal Investigator in a research project at UNC Chapel Hill.
Also, the DHS Summer Research Team for MSI’s brings a faculty member and student intern team from a minority serving partner institution to one of the host centers.
Here you can read essays written by graduate students who have worked on Coastal Hazards Center projects and have reflected on the value of the experience.
