Students are an integral component of the Coastal Hazards Center’s mission.

CHC at JSU has developed coastal engineering curricula at the bachelor’s and master’s level. CHC at UNC employs undergraduates and graduate students as interns in research.

Every summer, CHC at UNC employs a student from one of the minority serving partner institutions to work alongside a Principal Investigator on a research project.

Additionally, 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 students who have worked on Coastal Hazards Center projects and have reflected on the value of the experience.
