Welcome to Shannon Point
Our mission is to support and promote academic programs at the University related to the marine sciences. In addition to supporting formal courses both at the marine center and on the main campus, we work to promote a better understanding of local marine environments and living resources through research. We also provide innovative educational programs for undergraduates and support research by students and scientists from the University, the region, the nation, and the world. I invite you to explore SPMC through the pages of this web site. Collaboration with students and scientists throughout the world is fundamental to our mission and we welcome your interest.
