Fifty years ago, the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, with support from the National Science Foundation, was established as a non-profit corporation, "to acquire, construct, establish, own, equip and operate an institute for atmospheric research and other laboratories and facilities for atmospheric research and for research in related fields."
UCAR serves as a hub for research, education, and public outreach for the atmospheric and Earth system science community. It manages the National Center for Atmospheric Research and UCAR Community Programs on behalf of the National Science Foundation and the university community.
