REU – Green Infrastructure – University of Tennessee

February 9, 2022

Green Infrastructure for Sustainable Urban Environments (GI4SUrE) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) is a 10-week summer program designed to expose and immerse 10 undergraduate students to unique green infrastructure (GI) research. Green infrastructure is a way to build better infrastructure, addressing the National Academy of Engineering’s Grand Challenge to restore and improve urban infrastructure. This program lets students perform field, laboratory, or modeling studies to explore how GI can mitigate the effects of urban runoff on surface water quality and hydrology. This research will affect not only eastern Tennessee, but any area that deals with urban stormwater runoff. Students will also dive into a professional and social atmosphere that will develop their fundamental research methodologies and critical thinking skills.
