About Us


The College of Marine Science seeks to become one of the top oceanographic institutions in the world. Our vision involves taking the next steps in our journey, becoming a global leader in applying science to society’s needs through research, service and training of future scientists.

Funding from state government appropriations and student tuition are limited. Private financial support has become a major and growing source of revenue to fill critical faculty positions, provide state of the art technology and infrastructure, and enable us to attract and adequately support the best and brightest graduate students and post doctoral associates.

Join us in our vision. Invest in the University of South Florida’s College of Marine Science.
