COSEE Pacific Partnerships seeks to develop and implement relevant Initiatives that promote ocean literacy and marine science education for our community college partners, through:
Professional development opportunities and curriculum support for community college instructors to help integrate real ocean research, current discoveries, and essential principles of ocean literacy into their courses, no matter what their subject area.
Promoting Research Investigations in the Marine Environment (PRIME) summer program provides internships for community college students to develop research and outreach skills through hands-on experience working with marine scientists, practitioners, and informal marine educators.
For Academic and Career Advisors
Professional development workshops for community college professionals and career advising staff to assist them in providing students with resources and information about the pathways to continued education and careers in marine sciences.
