Community Air Research Experience (CARE)

The Community Air Research Experience (CARE) is a geoscience learning community that engages underrepresented undergraduates in research to measure and attribute air pollution in Chicago neighborhoods that differ in socioeconomic demographics and proximity to industrial facilities.


As a community partner in the NSF GEOPaths Community Air Research Experience (CARE) at Loyola University Chicago, the Edgewater Environmental Coalition (EEC) contributes ours local expertise to help achieve the project’s goals:


(1) to provide an applied, socially-relevant research experience for underrepresented minority students;

(2) to understand the spatial distribution and temporal variation of particle pollution in Chicago; and

(3) to provide air quality data for community use.
