Center for maritime research and scholarship established

NEW LONDON, Conn. — The U.S. Coast Guard Academy recently established a new Center for Maritime Policy & Strategy to promote education, research and policy innovation on contemporary challenges to America’s maritime interests.

The center’s primary mission is to promote interdisciplinary research and scholarship across maritime policy communities and academic disciplines. The center’s initial research focus encompasses the Arctic, governance of marine resource frontiers, coastal management and marine spatial planning and holistic approaches to maritime security.

“The Center for Maritime Policy & Strategy is an important organization for the academy and the U.S. Coast Guard," said Rear Adm. Sandra L. Stosz, U.S. Coast Guard Academy Superintendent.  “It will add value and enhance the national prominence of the academy through its unique ability to bridge policy and academic realms in facilitating innovative solutions to America’s maritime challenges.”
