Michigan Sea Grant College Program


Michigan Sea Grant is dedicated to the protection and sustainable use of the Great Lakes and coastal resources. Sea Grant promotes environmental stewardship, long-term economic development and responsible use of the Great Lakes. Water is what makes Michigan a special place, with more than 3,300 miles of Great Lakes shoreline, 11,000 inland lakes and 36,000 miles of rivers. The Great Lakes are important nationally and globally, with one-fifth of the world’s fresh surface water supply, and nine-tenths of the U.S. supply.

Michigan Sea Grant is a cooperative effort of the University of Michigan and Michigan State University. This state-wide program was established in 1969 at the University of Michigan and is supported by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
