Our mission is to increase public understanding of the oceans, provide educators (teachers) formal coursework in ocean sciences, and advance the science teaching and communication skills of our graduate students. It is our hope that our programs and courses will inspire and educate the next generation of scientists and educators, while encouraging the 'citizen scientist' in everyone.
Our programs are interactive and interdisciplinary providing experiential learning via research cruises, coastal field trips, research projects, and web-based technologies. State and federal agencies, businesses, and individual supporters are an integral part of the success and continuation of our programs.
