About UCAR Community Programs

The programs under the UCAR Community Programs (UCP) umbrella offer a suite of innovative resources, tools, and services for the atmospheric and Earth science community. Our activities include:

  • Training weather forecasters, emergency managers, and other decision-makers in current research
  • Developing STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education resources
  • Bringing real-time data and software tools to university classrooms and research labs
  • Managing field projects, conferences, and fellowship programs
  • Supporting satellite-based Earth and atmospheric monitoring
  • Providing staffing solutions nationally and internationally

UCP is part of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) located in Boulder, Colorado. UCP (previously known as the UCAR Office of Programs) was created in 1992 to manage a number of unique programs requested by the UCAR community.
