TRELIS 2022 Held in New York

In June 2022, the TRELIS project, Training and Retaining Leaders in STEM-Geospatial Sciences, held its fourth workshop at the Minnowbrook Conference Center in Blue Mountain Lake, New York. The TRELIS Fellows participated in a workshop designed to target topics and concerns of early-career individuals and focus on envisioning and crafting leadership pathways. This year, on the final day of the workshop, an All TRELIS event included members from the 2018, 2019, and 2020-21 cohorts. Afterwards, the TRELIS Fellows continued their professional development exchanges during the UCGIS Symposium at Syracuse University.  

TRELIS is managed by a leadership team from the University of Maine, San José State University, the University of Colorado, the University of Southern California, Arizona State University, Tableau Software, and the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS). It is supported with generous funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF Grant #1660400).
