Support OSU's Marine Studies Initiative

The mission of Oregon State University’s Marine Studies Initiative is to create a healthy future for our ocean and the planet through transdisciplinary research and teaching that emphasizes collaboration, experiential learning, engagement with society and problem-solving. 

Global challenges need global champions and the Marine Studies Initiative accomplishes this by providing students with access to the sea, the unparalleled living-learning laboratory of Oregon’s 350-mile coastline. Along the coast, students collaborate with OSU scientists at the Hatfield Marine Science Center campus in Newport, the Astoria Seafood Lab, and the Port Orford Field Station, gaining invaluable learning experiences with lifelong impacts.

When you become a partner in this exciting and groundbreaking initiative by making a gift today, your support makes a profound impact on the students of Oregon State University and the future of the Earth’s oceans and coasts.
