In New Jersey, we are interested in balancing economic growth with resource stewardship to sustain the state's $80+ billion coastal economy.
NJSGC fulfills its mission to promote the sustainable use of New Jersey's coastal and marine resources through relevant research and student training, educational excellence, and rapid dissemination of acquired knowledge. NJSGC is a statewide program bringing together the best talent within the region's member colleges and universities without regard to academic affiliation.
