Welcome to Shannon Point
Our mission is educating leaders in science, education, policy, and stewardship through experiential learning integrated with innovative marine and environmental scientific research. 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. We 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.
