MOUNTAIN ENVIRONMENTS RESEARCH INSTITUTE
The Mountain Environments Research Institute (MERI) is a new initiative at Western Washington University. The purpose of MERI is to engage in mountain research as educators and learners, researchers and stewards.

The institute is creating a certificate in mountain research skills that is intended to train the next generation of mountain researchers.
