Reauthorization of the National Sea Grant College Program, 1983. Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Education, Arts and Humanities of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. United States Senate, Ninety-Eighth Congress, First Session on S. 655 to Authorize Appropriations to Carry Out the National Sea Grant Program for Fiscal Years 1984, 1985, and 1986, and for Other Purposes.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Subcommittee on Labor and Human Resources.
The National Sea Grant College Program was established in 1966 to create a network of colleges and universities with rigorous programs in marine education and research. Provided in these hearings are testimony and written statements related to authorizing appropriations for the program for fiscal years 1984, 1985, and 1986. Major program accomplishments, objectives achieved, reasons for continuing the program, as well as reasons for terminating the program are addressed in the testimony and statements. Among the areas considered are: the Reagan administration's viewpoint; a perspective on why Sea Grant is unique, important, and should be reauthorized; a review of the ocean sector of the economy and Sea Grant's contribution to that sector, including activities in graduate education; partnership aspects characterizing the Sea Grant program (university-industry, college school, and others); Sea Grant activities at the Florida Institute of Technology (as well as at other colleges and universities); and industry use of knowledge generated by Sea Grant activities. It is pointed out that 175 academic institutions are currently participating in the program (19 of which have been designated Sea Grant colleges by the Secretary of Commerce) and that several programs initiated by Sea Grant support now continue without federal funds.
