Centers and Institutes

Clean Energy and Sustainability Analytics Center

CESAC is a public research and technical assistance center established to identify, quantify and interpret the ramifications of clean energy development and to facilitate energy planning. By supporting clean energy policies, technology, and practices through research and education programs we hope to develop an approach for clean energy analysis that will provide long-term environmental and economic solutions in a sustainable energy economy.

Microscopy and Microanalysis Research Laboratory

The Microscopy and Microanalysis Research Laboratory provides basic to advanced training in all aspects of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM), from specimen preparation to tissue thick/thin sectioning.

New Jersey Center for Water Science and Technology

The New Jersey Center for Water Science and Technology (NJ CWST) is dedicated to the study of water quality, pollution and technological solutions. Our dedicated team researches, monitors, and aids in the management of New Jersey’s lakes, rivers, reservoirs, and other waterbodies. The Passaic River Institute (PRI), an arm of the NJ CWST, works to further environmental research and education while seeking solutions for environmental problems within the Passaic River basin of Northern New Jersey. PRI research projects include the study of contaminant biological uptake, regional toxicity, pollutant fate, transport and distribution and ecosystem degradation and restoration.

Professional Resources in Science and Mathematics

Professional Resources in Science and Mathematics (PRISM) focuses on improving science, mathematics and technology teaching for all children while remaining in alignment with state and national standards. This is achieved by supporting inquiry-centered and problem-solving approaches to teaching and an alignment with a diverse group of people, of expertise, of district partners and of curriculum materials. PRISM works out of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Center for Science Teaching and Learning where they have implemented several large-scale reform projects, including e-CUSP, a project funded by the Math-Science Partnerships Program of the US Department of Education and the NJ DOE.

PSEG Institute for Sustainability Studies

The PSEG Institute for Sustainability Studies (ISS) at Montclair State University was founded in 2009 to play a transformative role in transdisciplinary research and education to address the relevant sustainability issues of our time. The PSEG Institute for Sustainability Studies seeks to advance sustainability by developing community-engaged research projects and building educational programs through academic-corporate-public partnerships.

Red Hawk Math Active Learning Center

With the creation of the Red Hawk Mathematics Active Learning Center (RHMALC), Montclair State University has implemented an innovative, exciting and successful approach to mathematics education. The RHMALC is an emporium style computer-aided learning facility housing various introductory mathematics courses needed by students in programs throughout the University.

The Sokol Institute for Pharmaceutical Life Sciences

The Margaret and Herman Sokol Institute for Pharmaceutical Life Sciences was established by the College in 2007 to rapidly advance the new skills, approaches and research that are critical to the development of tomorrow’s solutions to global health issues.
