One goal of UCF Coastal is to enhance public awareness about the amazing coastal resources we frequently take for granted.  We are proud to serve as a reference and resource for everyone from marine scientists to the general public, businesses and policymakers.

We’re highlighting some recent research undertaken by the diverse, interdisciplinary faculty of UCF Coastal in this new Lunch on the Coast speaker series. Join us to learn what it really means to live in a coastal state, with expert perspectives ranging from archaeology to coastal planning, from engineering to ecosystem and human health.  You’ll discover the full scope of issues currently facing our coasts and the resources that UCF Coastal is bringing to bear on understanding and resolving those threats.
