CSTPR Open House

webcastThis year we are celebrating CSTPR’s 15th anniversary and the 50th anniversary of the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences our campus home at CU Boulder. As a part of our ongoing work, we held an ‘Open House’ for alumni and friends of CSTPR on October 27, in partnership with the CU Alumni Association’s 2017 Homecoming Weekend.

If you were not able to join us and you would like an opportunity to financially support CSTPR as we move forward, please visit our donations page. CSTPR is seeking support for a variety of projects that offer students an opportunity to bring together their scholarly interests with practical experience on the ground, such as our Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Center internship opportunity and our ongoing Media and Climate Change Observatory. Your support helps us seed new projects at the interface of science, technology and society and provide unique opportunities to future generations of students. These opportunities shape career pathways in fundamental ways.

In late September we celebrated our 15th anniversary by way of a keynote lecture by former US President Barack Obama’s Climate and Energy Advisor Brian Deese. It was a wonderful gathering in the historic Old Main Chapel, and we assembled a slide show celebrating our fifteen years that can be found here.
