Rewew or Join SCEC as a Participating Institution

Date: 02/23/2022

Dear SCEC Community,

SCEC is seeking to renew the membership of our Participating Institutions as part of its new funding cycle with NSF and the USGS. Participating Institutions play a central role in the Center, helping to foster participation in our annual meetings, workshops, research program, education & outreach activities, and many other efforts. Participating Institutions also have a direct role in SCEC leadership, including at-large representation on the Board of Directors, which helps define strategic priorities and supports the Center Directors in oversight of the Center. Currently, we have two at-large members elected by the Participating Institutions, and we are planning to expand this to four.

We encourage all existing Participating Institutions to renew. In addition, we invite new institutions to join the Center – so please spread the word if you know of organizations that might be interested. We have set up an online form to facilitate the process both for existing and new Participating Institutions:


The form requests information about your institution, including a representative that will serve as a point of contact with SCEC. In addition, we are requesting a letter via the website from your Department Chair, Dean, or other unit director that confirms your interest in renewing or joining SCEC as a Participating Institution. Applications will be reviewed by the SCEC Board.

Please contact us if you have any questions. Thanks in advance for your continued participation in SCEC!

Best regards,

John Shaw and Emily Brodsky
SCEC Board of Directors, Chair and Vice Chair
