As a Sea Grant university, we offer educational programs and outreach for local or national communities on sustainable management of fisheries, aquaculture and tourism.   

The Sea Grant Program’s mission is “To promote the sustainability of Pennsylvania’s ecological and economic coastal and watershed resources through science-based research, education, and outreach.” A core value of the program is dedication to sustainability, which relies on communicating “the importance of good stewardship and the value of the services that the coastal, ocean, and Great Lakes’ ecosystems provide to the Nation.” Facilitating an informed public is a key element of the mission. It collaborates with state, regional, and national programs to offer curricula that inspires students in the classroom. Teacher training is also available and is designed to help educators bring science to life in the classroom.
