The University of Guam’s institutional mission addresses three primary foci: teaching, research, and outreach pertinent to the western Pacific region.
The major priorities of the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs are to:
"Preliminary research by scientists at the Water and Environmental Research Institute found two sites with relatively high concentrations of perfluoroalkyl substances in the central region of Guam. WERI had been researching potential contamination sources affecting water wells A-23 and A-25 in Sinajana." Read more in this July 15 article in the Guam Daily Post.
David Burdick, a research associate at the University of Guam Marine Lab, spoke about coral reef conservation and resilience strategies at the Pacific Islands Environmental Conference on June 25. Read more in this article by the Guam Daily Post.
"Researchers from NASA and the University of Guam have remotely mapped a large stretch of coral off the coast of the western Pacific island. ... Previously, the survey, which could help conservation efforts, would have taken divers a month." Read more in this article on Nature.com.
Sixteen high school students from the National Science Foundation INCLUDES Pilot: Growing STEM program completed their four-week research internship with a science fair on June 28 at the University of Guam.
The University of Guam, as a partner of the Pacific Islands Climate Adaptation Science Center consortium, will be assisting NASA research scientists from May 8 to May 16 with a project to map Guam's priority coral reefs using a state-of-the-art sensing technology.
