AWRI Science Advisory Board

Shortly after AWRI moved to Muskegon in 2001, we formed an external Science Advisory Board (SAB), whose charge is to provide a general evaluation of science, programmatic directions, future needs, and strengths and weaknesses at AWRI. Prior written evaluations are available on the AWRI website at

The SAB did their triennial review of AWRI on March 9-11.  This was their 8th review of AWRI’s programs, providing valuable advice.  Although it will be several weeks before we receive their formal report, the general feedback from the SAB was very positive.  We thank our dedicated SAB members (pictured) for their time and input.
