Eric and Colleen
If you like to be outdoors, aren't afraid to get your hands dirty, and are interested in the environment, maybe you belong on the TIERRA team! 

As a member of the TIERRA team, you'll work with 15 other NEIU students for 10 weeks, two days per week, through Summer 2012.  You will learn hands-on how to scientifically investigate soil and other Earth resources.  Three faculty mentors and a peer mentor will guide you in working with other students to complete and present a scientific research project. 

You'll meet professionals who work at places such as the USDA, NRCS, ARS, and consulting companies in the Chicago area.  They'll share tips on how you can get a job in this field and have a career that uses the knowledge you gain as part of the TIERRA team!
