The new Paros Center for Atmospheric Research supports the translation of ongoing and future research into:

  • improved hazardous weather predictions
  • alert systems and policies that will save lives during storms
  • extreme weather events that stem from climate change

A $10 million gift from Jerome (1960) and Linda Paros provides discretionary support for the new Paros Center for Atmospheric Research, funding for The Paros Fellows/Scholars Endowed Fund for graduate fellowships and undergraduate scholarships, and establishes the Paros Chair of Atmospheric Research and Hazard Mitigation.
