AGU Presentation

Jerome Mitchell recently presented at the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, California held December 9th through 13th, 2019. Jerome's presentation was titled "Infusing Diversity into Arctic and Antarctic Programs" which was co-authored with Dr. Linda Hayden, Director of the Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Education and Research (CERSER) at Elizabeth City State University.

The invited paper describes the objectives and activities associated with a model for achieving exceptional results in the inclusion of women and underrepresented students in polar related research projects. The model addresses deficits in minority polar participation and ways to create clear pathways for undergraduate students to pursue careers in polar science.
