The Mountain & Plains ERC helps create and support opportunities for trainees to learn from more than 40 Faculty members, and from the other trainees, in five different training programs. Multidisciplinary educational opportunities teach students how to address real-world problems facing industry, labor, and workers. This is achieved through shared classes, symposia, worksite walk-throughs, journal clubs and social gatherings. Students receive tuition support, research funds and stipends to train in our five programs:
