    National Sea Grant Law Center Announces Public Comment Period for Quadrennial Review

  • The National Sea Grant Law Center at the University of Mississippi School of Law is preparing for its quadrennial review, scheduled for October 2 – 4, 2018.

    A Site Review Team convened by the National Sea Grant College Program will visit campus to review and consider all aspects of the National Sea Grant Law Center’s programs including management and organization, performance, stakeholder engagement, and collaborative activities, including those with federal agencies and other Sea Grant programs.

    Individuals and organizations who would like to offer comments to the review team on these aspects of the program are invited to submit written comments by Monday, September 24, 2018. Comments should be emailed to the National Sea Grant Office at oar.sg-feedback@noaa.gov. Please put “NSGLC site review” in the subject line.

    Following the site visit, the review team will produce a report to the Director of the National Sea Grant College Program and the National Sea Grant Law Center. The review is part of the ongoing efforts of the National Sea Grant College Program to rigorously evaluate and foster increased cooperation among the Sea Grant programs nationwide.

    The NSGLC is a legal research, outreach, and education program housed within the law school’s Mississippi Law Research Institute. It is funded by a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration within the U.S. Department of Commerce.

    For more information about the review, contact the National Sea Grant Law Center Director Stephanie Otts at sshowalt@olemiss.edu.
