Scheduled Federal Review for the TXSG

A federal site review team convened by the director of the National Sea Grant College Program will review and discuss TXSG's management and organization, stakeholder engagement and collaborative network/National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) activities. Texas Sea Grant College Program is affiliated with Texas A&M University's College of Geosciences.

People who would like to offer comments to the review team on these aspects of the program are invited to submit written statements no later than Friday, April 29, 2011. Comments should be e-mailed to the National Sea Grant College Program at oar.sg.feedback@noaa.gov.

Texas Sea Grant's mission is to develop a better understanding of Texas coastal resources through research, outreach and educational programs in support of sustainable use and conservation of those resources for the benefit of the economy and environment. Texas Sea Grant exists as one of 32 university-based programs funded by NOAA to implement the agency's overarching mission by enlisting the academic research community, engaging coastal communities and providing marine education to all age groups. The TXSG mission is most simply stated in its motto: Coastal Science Serving Texans.

Following the site visit, the review team will produce a report to the National Sea Grant College Program and TXSG. The review is part of a larger effort by the National Sea Grant College Program to foster increased cooperation among the 32 Sea Grant Programs nationwide and to understand how local and regional programs and priorities relate to NOAA national needs and priorities.

For more information about the review, contact TXSG Director Robert Stickney at stickney@tamu.edu.
