NYSG at 50: New York Sea Grant Through The Years — Home
NYSG @ 50 - News

The New York Sea Grant Program was formally launched on October 27, 1971 at a ceremony in Governor Nelson Rockefeller's office in New York City.

The first year of funding was to support research, advisory services (extension), education, and program development. 

State University of New York Chancellor Ernest L. Boyer (pictured, at the podium) accepted the award on behalf of the consortium of SUNY and Cornell University. Accepting the award, the Chancellor stated, "We are going to move forward in this critical area dealing with happiness and survival itself".

In 2021 and 2022, we invite you to join us at NYSG during our year of reflection and celebration in which we also look towards the future of our coasts as we continue to focus on "happiness and survival itself".

More Info: New York Sea Grant

New York Sea Grant (NYSG), a cooperative program of Cornell University and the State University of New York (SUNY), is one of 34 university-based programs under the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Sea Grant College Program.

Since 1971, NYSG has represented a statewide network of integrated research, education and extension services promoting coastal community economic vitality, environmental sustainability and citizen awareness and understanding about the State’s marine and Great Lakes resources.

Through NYSG’s efforts, the combined talents of university scientists and extension specialists help develop and transfer science-based information to many coastal user groups—businesses and industries, federal, state and local government decision-makers and agency managers, educators, the media and the interested public.

The program maintains Great Lakes offices at Cornell University, SUNY Buffalo, SUNY Oswego and the Wayne County Cooperative Extension office in Newark. In the State's marine waters, NYSG has offices at Stony Brook University in Long Island, Brooklyn College and Cornell Cooperative Extension in NYC and Kingston in the Hudson Valley.

For updates on Sea Grant activities: www.nyseagrant.org has RSS, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube links. NYSG offers a free e-list sign up via www.nyseagrant.org/nycoastlines for its flagship publication, NY Coastlines/Currents, which is published quarterly.
