Profile:

  • The Great Lakes Research Consortium is an organization of seventeen colleges and universities in New York, with nine affiliate campuses in Ontario, dedicated to collaborative research and education on the Great lakes. We have nearly 400 member faculty, who are conducting research in every facet of Great Lakes science. Our mission is to improve the understanding of the Great Lakes ecosystem, including the physical , biological, and chemical processes that shape it, as well as the social and political forces that affect human impact on the lakes and their associated economic resources. We accomplish this through research, instruction, and public service. GLRC programs bring scientists together to share insights from their work and plan future collaborative research. Research task groups have been formed to study the many aspects of Great Lakes ecology, the source and fate of toxic contaminants, the physical and biological dynamics of large lake environments, and the social and political aspects of environmental degradation, among others. Seminar series The GLRC holds up to fifty seminars annually, two at each member and affiliated school, covering topics ranging from zebra mussels to aquatic toxicology. Since 1986, more than 6,000 students, faculty and the general public have attended one of these seminars.
