The University of Missouri-St. Louis is a member of the Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS). This allows students to partake in various courses offered by OTS, covering topics from field biology to conservation to public policy. Through a generous gift from Whitney R. Harris, UMSL is a member of OTS and the Harris Center provides support for graduate students towards course tuition and travel to and from the location of the course. Dr. Zuleyma Tang-Martinez is the current faculty representative to OTS from UMSL. Dr. Tang-Martinez should be contacted by students planning to apply for course admission.
