With our university partners, we can do so much more.

Since our inception, collaborations between university researchers and our own scientists and engineers have helped push the boundaries of the Earth system sciences. For example, university faculty have been instrumental in the development of state-of-the-art community models that are based at NSF NCAR. Those models, in turn, are available for other university researchers to use to ask new research questions.

College and university students who visit NSF NCAR as interns and fellows provide fresh ideas for solving stubborn problems and bring back what they have learned at UCAR and NSF NCAR to their own campuses.

At UCAR, it is our job to help facilitate these connections. In fact, our entire structure as an organization is built on top of the solid foundation of our 126 college and university members, who provide guidance on how we can best extend and enhance their own research and education capabilities.

We can help connect you with a lab or program. We can show you were the teaching and data resources are. We can let you know all the different opportunities we have for students. We even have a program called UCAR UVisit that will send a scientist to your school for research or a guest lecture. Let us know how we can connect you to all we have to offer.
