The Center for Integrated Research on the Environment (CIRE) is led by a Director and Management Team who have final responsibility for the direction and operations of the Center. The Director, along with the CIRE project managers, co-PIs and the CIRE Management Team all make up the project working group fielding projects organized within two overarching topical divisions: a Natural Resources Division and a Cultural Resources Division. The CIRE Director and project managers provide project-specific direction, operational control and first-level development of specific approaches defined by the Scopes-of-Work conducted by CIRE.
CIRE project managers and faculty partners are nationally recognized leaders and experts in their fields, many with broad international experience in research and administration. These specialists are integral to total project management and are the first-level of “response and execution” overseeing the work in the field, classroom, or training sessions associated with an award, contract or task order within a Cooperative Agreement. They also coordinate with staff and other UM faculty specialists, faculty from other universities, and subcontractors and consulting firms within the research/contract area for which they oversee and serve as investigators related to specific task orders.
