 Advisory Committee

for Environmental Research and Education (AC-ERE)

In 2000, NSF established the Advisory Committee for Environmental Research and Education (AC-ERE). NSF's Director, Dr. Rita Colwell, charged the Committee at its first meeting in October 2000. AC-ERE is to:

· Provide advice, recommendations and oversight concerning support for the NSF's environmental research and education portfolio.

· Be a base of contact with the scientific community to inform NSF of the impact of its research support and NSF-wide policies on the scientific community.

· Serve as a forum for consideration of interdisciplinary environmental topics as well as environmental activities in a wide range of disciplines.

· Provide broad input into long-range plans and partnership opportunities.

· Perform oversight of program management, overall program balance, and other aspects of program performance for environmental research and education activities.
