Sea Grant Academy Class of 2022

April 6th, 2022

Last week, staff members from 34 different Sea Grant programs across the United States attended Sea Grant Academy. The week- long event, hosted by Oregon Sea Grant, took place in Annapolis, Maryland. The second session will take place in Georgia in September. The program was created as a professional development workshop to give Sea Grant employees valuable training and background information in a variety of fields, advancing working knowledge and the advancements of all Sea Grant programs.

New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium representative Samantha Kreisler, Communication Specialist, reflects on her academy experience: “Sea Grant Academy was rewarding and valuable. Not only did I further my knowledge of the inner workings within the Sea Grant network, but I also learned a lot about the different projects of the other state’s programs. I am looking forward to seeing my Sea Grant cohorts again in September!”
