Educational Affiliates

IRIS Educational Affiliates are a community of institutions that share a common interest in promoting and enhancing seismology education. As such, members of this community are consumers of both seismology educational products and seismological research, and are uniquely positioned to spend time thinking, working, and solving seismology educational issues across a spectrum of learners.
