Thirty-one faculty, staff, undergraduate and graduate students, from Houghton and Ann Arbor, traveled to Detroit from May 15-19 to attend the 60th International Association of Great Lakes Research (IAGLR) conference at the Cobo Center. Michigan Tech engagement included exhibitor displays staffed by the Great Lakes Research Center (GLRC) and the Michigan Tech Research Institute (MTRI). Michigan Tech was a contributing sponsor made possible by support from the College of Engineering, College of Sciences and Arts, the GLRC and MTRI.
Ashley Hendricks, a graduate student in Environmental Engineering and advised by Dr. Noel Urban (CEE), won the “2017 David M. Dolan Memorial Fellowship” for pursuing graduate research involving modeling and statistics related to the Great Lakes.
On Wednesday, May 17 conference attendees joined Detroit Chapter Alumni and Friends for a social at the Big City Bar & Grill in Detroit. Approximately 30 people attended the event.
The 31 attendees from Michigan Tech represented the following academic departments and institutes: Civil & Environmental Engineering, Biological Sciences, Social Sciences, Geological and Mining Engineering and Sciences, the Great Lakes Research Center, and the Michigan Tech Research Institute.
