Chapters and Regional Sites

ISEE and its programs are managed at UC Santa Cruz. ISEE collaborates with many local faculty and partners, and draws from the efforts of a number of UC Santa Cruz graduate students and postdocs from many science and engineering disciplines in the PDP.  While many of ISEE’s activities are outlined in other areas of our website, ISEE’s PDP-specific activities and the efforts of our local PDP participants are included in our Santa Cruz Chapter.

Regional ISEE Chapters are made up of one or more partner organizations, usually with a thematic focus, that collectively support participation in the PDP in their region. Participation in ISEE Chapters is funded directly by the organization(s) in the Chapter, and/or through grants awarded to ISEE specifically for the purpose of expanding participation in the PDP. Chapters vary in size and focus and each works with ISEE Headquarters to develop a unique growth plan. Chapters each bring something unique to ISEE and shape the community in their own way. ISEE welcomes new Chapters and has outlined the key components for launching a successful one.

Current Regional ISEE Chapters include:

Akamai-Hawaii Chapter

Dunlap Institute Chapter

UCLA Astronomy & Astrophysics Chapter

Houston Chapter

Boulder Chapter

Regional ISEE Chapters are continuing to form as ISEE expands, and ISEE includes participation from the following regions and institutions.
