One of the most valuable ways to learn about coastal science and policy is to start by doing. In addition to partnering with campus programs like the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program and the The Center to Advance Mentored, Inquiry-Based Opportunities (CAMINO) program, we also work with a wide range of partners to both connect students with leaders in the broader field of coastal science and policy and where relevant, to facilitate meaningful summer placements and capstone projects that foster interdisciplinary study.

Interested in partnering with program or learning how to become a practitioner partner for our students’ summer placement and capstone project work? Email
