(MS Word Document) 

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.


The function of Federal advisory committees is advisory only. Any opinions, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in the reports and presentations below are those of the Advisory Committee, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.

To obtain copies of AC-ERE reports, please send an e-mail to ere-info@nsf.gov.
