UCI Director Joins WHOI Marine Policy Center Advisory Committee

Monmouth University Urban Coast Institute (UC) Director Tony MacDonald has been appointed as a member of the Advisory Committee for the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Marine Policy Center (MPC).

The MPC, originally established in 1970 as the Marine Policy and Ocean Management program, conducts social scientific research that integrates economics, policy analysis, and law with the Institution’s basic research in ocean sciences. The Advisory Committee is undertaking an assessment of the current status, potential future directions, and providing advice and recommendations regarding the Center’s mission and role at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and how it addresses critical marine and ocean policy problems of our time.

WHOI is a private, non-profit organization on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, dedicated to marine research, engineering, and higher education. Established in 1930, its mission is to understand the ocean and its interactions with the Earth as a whole, and to communicate an understanding of the ocean’s role in the changing global environment.
