Dedicated to the future of our coast

Ambassador James Joseph Chair of the Board

The Institute understands that to solve the complex challenges that our coastal communities will face into the future, we must bring an integrated approach that bridges traditional research activities and focuses our applied studies at the intersection of the environment, the economy, and the human dimension.
