A Partnership in Observational and Computational Astronomy

The SC State “Partnership in Observational and Computational Astronomy (POCA)” is a 8-year project funded by the National Science Foundation’s program “Partnerships in Astronomy and Astrophysics Research and Education”.

The mission of POCA is to develop an effective, long-term partnership between SC State, Clemson University and the National Optical Astronomy Observatory that combines the strengths of the three institutions to increase the scientific and educational output of all the partners with special emphasis on enhancing diversity in the field of astronomy. POCA supports a variety of activities in astronomical research, curriculum development and outreach.
