In VIP teams, undergraduate and graduate students — from various years, disciplines and backgrounds — work with faculty on long-term, large-scale research, design and creative inquiry projects. The VIP program includes both standalone and interconnected projects. The Environment and Resilience and the Biosphere 2 Honors VIP groups are multi-project enterprises with a VIP team dedicated to each project. In the Environment and Resilience VIP group, long-term goals could include collaboration across teams to address overarching scientific questions.
