The goal of the center is to address training, research problems, and technology transfer issues as they relate to the environment; by increasing the number of under-represented minority graduates in science, mathematics, engineering, and technology. ERT2C projects focus on analysis of toxic elements and compounds in a closed environment, trace metals in soil, soil sediments, air and wastewater processes, wastewater contaminants, and environmental policy and law. The Core Analytical Facility is an important component of the center. The Core‘s mission is to achieve regional, community, and national recognition as a quality environmental analytical laboratory and environmental research program. This Mission will be achieved through the characterization of environmental toxicants in the ambient environment (air, soil, and/or water) and the investigation of the mechanisms involved in the toxicity effect.
