Challenges Become Opportunities 

Focused on cross-cutting research themes to facilitate the convergence of transdisciplinary research, education, outreach and engagement. 

Workshops and Events


Through the Marine Studies Initiative’s planning process, working groups identified specific challenges and ways in which they can be addressed. A key element for success is commitment by faculty, staff and leadership to finding ways to navigate these challenges. In its achievements, this initiative at Oregon State University will be a model for other large university transformations to meet 21st-century educational and research needs.
