Minority Research Programs

CREATE has supported the DHS minority research program since its inception, by hosting seven research teams from minority serving institutions. We have funded follow-on work by three teams, in particular, Haskell for three additional years, and California State University, Long Beach and University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez each for an additional year. The summer MSI team from East LA College has a follow on application under review at present.


Dr. Humberto Gallegos and Angel Huezo from East Los Angeles College, Monterey Park, worked with CREATE on a study entitled Forecasting Flood Extent and Structural Damage Downstream from Sepulveda Dam Using Multiple Scenarios
