The Buffalo State College Great Lakes Center (GLC) will hold an open house and information session on Wednesday, November 28, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. in Science Building 250.
The center’s annual report for 2011–2012 will be presented, the progress of its graduate programs will be discussed, and future projects will be reviewed.
Much of the research conducted at the GLC focuses on issues related to Lake Erie. However, nationwide and international projects are also considered high priority because many issues affecting the Great Lakes affect other bodies of water around the world.
Over the past five years, GLC accomplishments include extensive publications and presentations, over $3.8 million in funded research, advisement of more than 30 graduate students, and many opportunities for undergraduates to participate in GLC projects. The GLC also offers its resources to help all departments on campus.
GLC facilities include a waterfront site on the Black Rock Canal where the Lake Erie Field Station, the Dick Smith Teaching Pavilion, and the college’s fleet of research vessels are located. The Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry Lab is located in the Science Building, along with the Watershed Research and Aquatic Ecology labs.
This discussion will be informal, and presentations will be oral and visual. The campus community is invited.
