PEP a “Virtual” Success

SEA Semester

Just over a decade ago, the Woods Hole Partnership Education Program (PEP) was founded. Its goal: to attract a more diverse workforce to the Woods Hole scientific community. Every summer, students from underrepresented communities come to Woods Hole, stay on the SEA campus, participate in academic coursework and conduct research internships.  This summer was different.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program was virtual.  We asked PEP Acting Director Onjalé Scott Price how things went.
