Description: The Desert Research Institute (DRI) is the nonprofit research campus of the
Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE), which is overseen by Chancellor Jim
Rogers and a 13-member Board of Regents. DRI is a unique blending of academia
and entrepreneurship. From our desert home in Nevada, DRI employs more than 500
faculty, support staff, and students who are engaged in a research enterprise
generating approximately $45 million in total annual revenue. At any give time,
DRI is engaged in about 300 scientific research projects from our main research
campuses in Las Vegas (Southern Nevada Science Park) and Reno (Dandini Research
Park), with subsidiary campuses in Boulder City, Nevada and Steamboat Springs,
Colorado. DRI's environmental research programs are directed from three core
divisions (Atmospheric Sciences, Earth and Ecosystem Sciences, and Hydrologic
Sciences) and three interdisciplinary centers (Center for Arid Lands
Environmental Management, the Center for Watersheds and Environmental
Sustainability) and the Frank H. Rogers Center for Environmental Remediation
and Monitoring (CERM). Grounded in fundamental research, we provide our
sponsors and clients with innovative solutions to pressing environmental
problems as we balance the need to develop resources while protecting and
sustaining the environment. For the people of Nevada, our commitment is the
application of our scientific understanding to the effective management of all
the State's natural resources while meeting needs for economic diversification
and science-based educational opportunities.
