Charlotte Brown


4 to 6 p.m., May 2, 2024

Come see what the University of Arizona Vertically Integrated Projects (VIPs)  students have been working on the past school year! The poster session will be held in the Tumamoc Hill Boathouse. Projects are focused on environmental challenges and solutions. The Desert Laboratory’s own team has been examining what may make Tumamoc’s desert plant species sensitive to prolonged drought.

The Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) program is a transformative approach to enhancing higher education by engaging undergraduate and graduate students in ambitious, long-term, large-scale, multidisciplinary project teams that are led by faculty. The model has been rigorously evaluated and refined over more than two decades.
