Getting started in the science and environmental restoration workforce can be a daunting and twisting path. Internships help young scientists experience and better understand what a career in the geosciences might look like, but beyond research experience, are we giving interns the soft skills they need to succeed on their long-term career path? CRC’s Chesapeake Student Recruitment, Early Advisement, and Mentoring (C-StREAM) program uses the Competencies framework, an innovative tool developed from a large, multi-year study at Penn State, to ensure that students in the program are prepared to assume a leadership role and maximize their impact on the global challenges we are facing.
Join us on Wednesday, August 17th, from 12-1 pm to hear from students in the 2022 cohort about their exciting research as well as how they applied the framework of competencies to set themselves up for success.
- Randy K. Rowel, Director, C-StREAM
- Anna He, 2022 C-StREAM fellow with the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office, Duke University
- Joseph Rivera Lopez, 2022 C-StREAM fellow with the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, University of Puerto Rico

About CRC Roundtable
The Chesapeake Research Consortium (CRC) comprises seven research and education institutions around the Chesapeake Bay, convening with the goal of using science to inform management. We launched the CRC Roundtable, a monthly virtual seminar series, to host targeted, inclusive, and informed conversations matching scientific advances and management needs in a way that moves us collectively forward toward decision-making for effective and sustainable management of the Chesapeake Bay, its watershed, and its living resources. Learn more about what we accomplished in 2021 in our annual report.
The lunchtime seminars invite a diverse range of researchers, managers, and other professionals to have timely conversations around topics relevant to the Chesapeake partnership. The seminars also build connectivity across participating organizations and identify ways to increase our collective competency for decision making.
