"The Robert A. Pritzker Center for Meteoritics and Polar Studies' mission is to enhance our knowledge of nature through rigorous scientific studies in meteoritics, the planetary sciences and polar studies.
One of the main goals of the Center is to curate one of the world's largest meteorite collections and to provide the scientific community with samples for high quality scientific research. The Center strives to maintain a balance between serving current research needs and preserving the collection for the future generations.
The Center is engaged in educational outreach to the public, to educators at all levels, and to students at the undergraduate and graduate levels."
