Southwest Consortium for Environmental Research and Policy (SCERP)
IRSC is the SDSU representative for the Southwest Consortium for Environmental Research and Policy (SCERP), a university consortium dedicated to applied environmental research of the U.S.-Mexican border region. SCERP was created by the U.S. Congress in October 1990 in legislation that stated the consortium was to initiate a comprehensive analysis of possible solutions to the acute air, water quality, and hazardous waste problems that plague the United States-Mexico border region. SCERP carries out its mission through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
SCERP is made up of five U.S. universities:University of Texas at El Paso Arizona State University New Mexico State University University of Utah San Diego State University
and five Mexican universities:El Colegio de la Frontera Norte Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juárez Instituto Tecnológico de Ciudad Juárez Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey Universidad Autónoma de Baja California.
The Consortium is administered by a management committee consisting of a member from each SCERP university. Dr. Paul Ganster, of San Diego State University, is Chair of the SCERP Management Committee. Since 1992, SCERP has provided funding for many SDSU faculty members for applied research projects on border environmental issues. Most of these projects have included partners from Mexican universities and SDSU students, both graduate and undergraduate. The SCERP projects have also been important for supporting partnerships with groups in the regional binational community, including industry and trade associations, environmental organizations, and local government.
