Sea grant colleges


  • Anonymous


The University of Wisconsin System has been designated a Sea Grant College by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Wisconsin becomes the fifth university in the nation named to Sea Grant College status (see ‘Land Is Just an Island—Birth of Sea Grant,’ May EOS). The designation was made ‘in recognition of exceptionally high standards of effort, performance, and innovation in marine-related programs.’

The new status assures priority funding by the federal government and represents a long-term commitment to the University to continue working to maintain and develop the nation's marine environment and resources.
