Who We Are...

Local Topics, Regional Topics, Global TopicsThe Regional Science Consortium is a collaborative, non-profit organization that focuses on and coordinates educational and research projects for Lake Erie and the upper Ohio River Basin.

The colleges and universities that form the foundation of the Regional Science Consortium held a preliminary organizational meeting in Spring 2002. Bylaws for the RSC were ratified on May 8, 2003, and the RSC secured 501(c)3 non-profit status on February 10, 2004.

The Regional Science Consortium is just one of the many educational and research organizations establishing residence in the Tom Ridge Environmental Center at Presque Isle.

The RSC has been joined at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center by The Friends of the Tom Ridge Environmental Center, the Lake Erie-Allegheny Earth Force, the PA Audubon Society, the PA Sea Grant, the Presque Isle Partnership, and the Purple Martin Conservation Association.

In addition, the Tom Ridge Environmental Center is also home to offices for the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the PA Department of Environmental Protection, and the Office of the Great Lakes.

The RSC benefits from a reciprocal relationship with the residents of the Tom Ridge Environmental Center. While the RSC leases space from the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the department itself is a member of the Consortium.
