With the vision of a unified global, natural system in mind, the College seeks to build new interdisciplinary research teams in collaboration with our local partners. As stewards of the oceans, it is our mission to fully engage the national and international scientific communities, through the reporting of research results in the most respected oral and written venues, and by professional service. We strive to define and realize a bright future with the emerging issues that affect the economic conditions of the Florida West Coast Shelf and we seek to address a myriad of relevant societal issues such as overfishing, coastal erosion, red tides, ocean noise, dying coral reefs, hurricane predictions, sea level rise, floods, ocean acidification, and drought to build better, more environmentally-sustainable and safe communities.
