RIEEE is pleased to have become a US Partner in the GLOBE program in the Spring of 2017.   We intend to utilize the GLOBE model to further enhance research and education efforts of affiliated faculty and staff when appropriate and support other units on campus interested in integrating GLOBE protocols and curricula into academic and educational outreach programs.  If you have questions please email Grace Plummer at If you want to stay informed as we move ahead, please complete this form.

Faculty and staff from the College of Arts and Sciences, College Access Partnerships and the Departments of Biology, Mathematical Sciences, Physics and Geography and Planning contributed to our proposal to join GLOBE.  We are working to launch the program at Appalachian State in the Fall of 2017 with an information session and learning opportunities. 

  • Appalachian faculty and staff may also be interested in joining as a member of the GLOBE International STEM Network (GISN).  In this role, you may mentor students, inspire pursuit of STEM careers, propose and develop GLOBE field campaigns, or use GLOBE data in your research and in the classroom.
  • Community College, K-12 and informal educators in Western North Carolina - If you are not already affiliated with a Partner Institution and are interested in or already collecting appropriate data, let us know!  We are eager to support and recognize your work and to develop professional development workshops or other resources that suit your needs.
