TIERA is a collaboration between Tulane University and the Foundation for the Conservation of the Tropical Andes (FCAT), an Ecuadorian NGO. The program combines on-campus activities with immersion in an award-winning, community engaged research experience at a safe, modern “learning laboratory” in Ecuador where students gain hands-on experience and develop environmental leadership skills. TIERA is open to undergraduate students of all majors and years and also includes faculty and graduate students. Undergraduates in the program participate on a Field Course experience in Ecuador and then select among Fellows, Scholars, and Leadership tracks; all tracks require taking a field course as an entry point to the program. TIERA unites the Ecuador Scholars Program, the Tropical Field Biology & Conservation field course, and Independent Research Program.
Join us at our annual Symposium to learn more about how you can get involved! Food will be served and there will be plenty of past participants to talk to about their experiences in Ecuador.
