Sustainable RIVER REU Gives Students a Chance to Study Missouri River
Supporting 10 students for 11 weeks during the summers of 2017-2019, Sustainable RIVER REU participants will examine the functioning and management of the Missouri River.
“Conducting undergraduate research is high-impact practice in education,” said Meghann Jarchow, coordinator for the Sustainability Program and principal investigator of the Sustainable RIVER REU. “These experiences are often transformative for students."
Through individual research projects with faculty mentors from USD’s Missouri River Institute, students will address the question of how invasive elements in the Missouri River and its uplands affect the sustainability of the river and the humans who depend on it.
“USD is well-suited for this project because we have a depth of multidisciplinary research expertise on the Missouri River, and we have systems-thinking trained faculty members through our Sustainability Program,” said Jarchow.
A list of the faculty and research projects can be found on the Sustainable RIVER homepage.
