Centers of Excellence - a new UH Sea Grant initiative which was inspired by our current director, Dr. Gordon Grau. When he first began his directorship in 2000 he realized, although the Sea Grant model is very successful in bringing cutting-edge university research to coastal communities through the network of research, outreach and education specialists, a tremendous opportunity existed to integrate Sea Grant within the rest of the university. The issues we tackle every day are extremely complex and varied, and the best solutions can only be found when experts from throughout the university come together to share their knowledge and expertise. Out of this vision emerged the new Center of Excellence model which represents a new shift in thinking throughout the entire Sea Grant network and will allow us to engage even more meaningfully with the communities which we serve.
