On March 14, 2017, UIC News wrote an article about the Northwest Passage Project, "a program that will allow students, researchers, experts, and media professionals to see, first-hand, the changing environment of the Arctic, where the effects of climate change are amplified. Thirty-five high school, undergraduate, and graduate students from collaborating institutions, a marine biologist, geochemist, physical oceanographer, historian, journalist and professional film crew will board the SSV Oliver Hazard Perry (OHP) this summer to conduct cutting edge research and visit several remote Inuit settlements." Miquel Gonzalez-Meler, Professor of Biological Sciences, is the UIC coordinator of the project. Click here
