Great Salt Lake Institute
Connecting people to Great Salt Lake through research and education.
Great Salt Lake Institute (GSLI) was established in 2008 with support from Westminster University and an external grant, allowing us to hire a coordinator, involve student employees, and purchase equipment to reach out to the community in a real way. We began by running community field trips and developing high school and college curriculum on GSL. Shortly thereafter, we created a GSLI summer undergraduate research program.

We are interested in helping people make connections to enhance study, understanding and appreciation of the lake and its surroundings. To get involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
