The 40 institutions of the national CIRTL Network include public and private research institutions and several primarily minority institutions. As a network of 41 institutions, CIRTL member institutions produce one-third of all STEM PhD’s awarded in the U.S. Member institutions contribute online and in-person programming that is available to graduate students and postdocs across the Network, so participants can benefit from expertise at other institutions.
