Workshop presentations and summaries of discussions are available on the program page; participants' activity, course, and essay contributions are available via the participants page.
The workshop combines presentations from leaders (such as the keynote by Dr. Maureen Lichtveld of the Center for Gulf Coast Environmental Health Research, Leadership, and Strategic Initiatives ( This site may be offline. ) ), opportunities to learn about InTeGrate resources and funding opportunities, and structured opportunities to work with team members and other workshop participants to develop action plans. An optional pre-meeting tour of post-Katrina New Orleans will provide an opportunity to see the interface between Coastal Hazards, Risk and Environmental Justice in a very personal way.
This workshop is targeted for teams from minority-serving institutions and other colleges and universities that serve populations that are under-represented in the geosciences and related fields.
