Annual report highlights Sea Grant's efforts for Delawareans


8:34 a.m., June 14, 2012--The Delaware Sea Grant College Program (DESG) is constantly checking in on the state’s coast to help maintain a healthy environment. The newest edition of the program’s Reporter newsletter highlights the many ways that Sea Grant scientists and educators are serving the people of the First State.

“A vibrant coast is essential to our quality of life and critical to our future,” said Nancy Targett, director of Delaware Sea Grant and dean of UD’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment. “We understand the importance of the coast to businesses, industries, communities, homeowners and beachgoers.”

The University of Delaware's Assistive Medical Technologies Club is working to provide special devices from ride-on cars to walkers to children with mobility limitations.

Keeping students on track

University of Delaware advisers and faculty are now armed with a powerful new system, called the Blue Hen Success Collaborative, to help them quickly identify students who are struggling and help them stay on track to graduation.

Sea Grant scientists are examining invasive species, gauging sea-level rise and monitoring water quality. Sea Grant efforts also include building awareness about coastal storms and sharing the health benefits of seafood, among other initiatives.

Published annually, Reporter encourages readers to become informed, get involved and stay connected through the various programs of the college and Sea Grant. The annual report is available in a new online format as well as a downloadable version.

Reporter readers who complete the readership survey by Dec. 31 will be entered in a drawing for Delaware Sea Grant’s coastal prize package, which includes a stay at UD’s Virden Center in Lewes, Del.
