About the CEMELA School

The CEMELA School is an integral part of the education and research experience of CEMELA's graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. PIs, faculty, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers will join together in an intensive five-day school consisting of two one-credit graduate courses, sessions on research methodology, and meetings of CEMELA-wide research teams to continue to develop research questions and collaborative projects across university sites.

A subgroup of CEMELA's Advisory Board willjoin the School for the first two days. The Advisory Board members will play a participatory observation role in the CEMELA School, will lead round table discussions for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, and attend advisory meetings with PIs and faculty members to discuss issues pertinent to CEMELA's administration and research goals.

About Tucson

Tucson is located in southern Arizona, about 60 miles north of the US/Mexico border. Tucson is in the Sonoran desert and is surrounded by mountains, including the 9100-foot high Mount Lemmon. It is also one of the oldest settlements in North America and enjoys a rich mix of Native American, Hispanic, and Anglo cultures.

The Insider's Guide to Tucson has an excellent web site and the city's visitor page has many interesting links. Try the Arizona Guide site for more information about other parts of Arizona.
