The ASBPA Students and New Professionals committee has developed a Coastal Universities Guide, an interactive map-based tool for high school or college students looking for an undergraduate or graduate coastal program:
The goal of the Guide to recruit smart young minds already interested in science and math to become coastal geologists, engineers and nearshore oceanographers. We hope you will take some ownership of this tool which we envision as a resource for the greater coastal community of practice. Please make suggestions, add or edit coastal programs, and help us keep it up-to-date. You may contact email@example.com with questions.
Please help us beta test the guide by submitting edits, additions, or suggestions (use notes) by March 13, 2020 here:
What is a coastal university program? This is a subjective decision. If you consider your program to have a coastal specialty, go ahead and submit it. Very few programs or degrees include the word “coastal”; however, many science, engineering, and other departments allow for coastal specialization through coursework and research with coastal experts. The map should include both.
Why is my program missing? Is it not coastal? Not at all. The tool has been developed by volunteers and many programs are missing. At this point, we have a template that needs to be populated. Please help!
Should I include a branch campus if it has a coastal specialization too? We’d like the main and branch campuses to be shown on the map if both have coastal programs. Please add location information for both.
