The Structure

The Marine and Coastal Ecology Research Center’s Board of Directors oversee the global operations of the coastal center. They are positioned to assure the administration, faculty, and staff are infused with support and expertise needed to continually improve how we participate in conservation initiatives.

Oversight and support are the key to success!

MCERC strives to offer outstanding educational programs and cutting edge scientific research.  Support for operations is welcomed from volunteers and financial donors who understand the importance of marine and coastal conservation.   

Mentoring is embraced at all levels of the MCERC organization. 

Research assistants are mentored by faculty who teach them to mentor the interns working on their teams.

Interns actively participate in mentoring the people who participate in field programs and day excursions.

Sharing information is critical to the success of MCERC’s goals and to the people we work so hard to support through our programs. 

We eagerly participate in outreach programs, develop opportunities for citizen scientists, create internships and seminars in our online platforms to reach as far as possible across the globe.

Communication throughout our communities

The science team distributes information gleaned from research projects via peer reviewed publications, professional conferences, and outreach opportunities.

All program participants are mentored into being ambassadors for conservation so that they can continue to share the science that is so important to the future of healthy marine ecosystems.
