Introduction by Mona Ellerbro My name is Mona Ellerbrock, and I have two positions: Director of Environmental Hazard Management (EHM) Unit of University Extension, UC Davis, and as the team leader for the UC Davis Mare Island (MI) Iniative, reporting to the Office of Research at UC Davis. I have directed the EHM Program for eight years. My environmental contamination work began over 13 years ago working as a Peace Corps volunteer on a water project in Togo, West Africa. We have been working extensively over the last year with a large group of educators, and shipyard civilian employees retraining Mare Island workers to do their own environmental remediation. Working with labor groups, the private industry councils, community colleges and the faculty of UC Davis we have succeeded in securing some grant money to continue our retraining and research efforts. We are one of the 16 recipients of the DoD Environmental Education Partnership Awards. Also, MINSY and UC Davis will team up to perform the phase I ecological Risk Assessment (ERA) for the shipyard. We are also working with McClellan Air Force Base, in retraining/education and in "green technology" development. As one institutional member of the MI Education Consortium, I wrote and submitted a joint OEA/EDA draft planning proposal on behalf of both UC Davis and the consortium to continue the role of educational institutions in the defense conversion process in Vallejo. This consortium consists of 13 institutions including 5 CSU campuses, UC Davis, and the Vallejo Unified School District.
