Affiliate Benefits

Center affiliates exclusively participate in twice yearly (spring and fall) Center meetings to finalize and approve new projects and to receive updates on the status of the ongoing research of the Center. Affiliate organizations appoint a representative(s) to oversee their interests in the Center?s activities. Up to four affiliate representatives can attend center meetings. Affiliate representatives report back to their organizations on advances that can enhance existing efforts in their organizations or lead to the development of new ones. Through our feedback process to faculty research teams, affiliates can recommend directions in ongoing projects that better align their projected outcomes to their needs. Interested affiliates also can mentor projects which they feel are highly relevant to their organizations. In this capacity of Project Monitor, an affiliate works closely with the faculty and students to provide their organization?s perspective to the work, keep the project on target, and represent the Affiliate Advisory Board interests.
