CommunicationsThe Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium (MASGC) initiated its communications program in 1986 as a distinct element of the consortium's management component and as a way to help meet the National Sea Grant mandates of education and outreach. The purpose of the program is to provide timely, useful information about the consortium's research, education and outreach activities and accomplishments to all interested audiences.
As stated in the consortium's Strategic Plan, the communications program's long-term goal is to build an award-winning program. To achieve this, the communications program will pursue two objectives: to re-establish the program's presence among Mississippi and Alabama stakeholders including Sea Grant's institutional and extension partners, funded researchers, the media, community organizations and the general public and to expand MASGC's communications efforts using new communications technology, innovative communications products and new partnerships that leverage MASGC's communications funds.
