Refreshing strategic priorities for science support – Your input requested by 3/16/2020

Dear Colleagues:

As a member of the geoscience and Earth education community, we encourage you to provide input on strategic priorities for a major facility that supports geoscience using geodesy. While UNAVCO’s primary funding comes from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and NASA, our reach is global.

UNAVCO is in a period of change, approaching the end of our 2016-2020 strategic plan, awaiting changes to the NSF grant requirements, and discussing future integration with our sister facility, IRIS. Each of these changes is an opportunity to revisit the focus of our facility and the community that it serves.

UNAVCO leadership has begun a refresh of its existing strategy. We are now reaching out to the broader geoscience community to determine areas for growth and improvement. We greatly value your input and invite you to complete a brief survey that should take no more than 10 minutes of your time. Your response by March 16th is appreciated.

Thank you,

Dr. Lucy Flesch, Chair, UNAVCO Board of Directors

Dr. Rebecca Bendick, UNAVCO President
