CESAC is a public research and technical assistance center. The Center was established to identify, quantify and interpret the ramifications of clean energy development and to facilitate energy planning. We support clean energy policies, technology and practices through research and education programs. Our clean energy analysis process intends to 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 TEM and SEM. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) uses a particle beam of electrons through specimens to generate a highly-magnified visualization. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) produces images of a sample by scanning the surface with a focused beam of electrons. We cover the full process 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, furthers environmental research and education while seeking solutions for environmental problems within the Passaic River basin of Northern New Jersey. Research projects include the study of contaminant biological uptake, regional toxicity, pollutant fate, transport, 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. We work to accomplish this while ensuring we remain in alignment with state and national standards. We collaborate with a diverse group of people, expertise, districts and curriculum materials while utilizing inquiry-centered and problem-solving teaching styles. PRISM works out of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Center for Science Teaching and Learning. In the Center, we have implemented several large-scale reform projects. This includes e-CUSP, a project funded by the US and NJ Departments of Education Math-Science Partnerships Program.
PSEG Institute for Sustainability Studies

The PSEG Institute for Sustainability Studies (ISS) at Montclair State University plays a transformative role in transdisciplinary research and education. Through the Institute, we address the relevant sustainability issues of our time. The Institute advances sustainability by developing community-engaged research projects and building educational programs through academic-corporate-public partnerships.
