“I want us to eventually be a strong network of peers and leaders in our fields. I want our reputation to be that we lift each other up (and all people, regardless of if they're DDCSP alums or not), always have each other's backs and we're all really good at what we do." ~Dyaami D'Orazio DDCSP UW Alumni

Each year in March more than 100 Great Lakes advocates join Healing Our Waters - Great Lakes Coalition in Washington, D.C. to share their stories with members of congress.

I am writing to share our excitement and recruit applications for our new solutions-focused graduate program, the Coastal Science and Policy Program at the University of California, Santa Cruz. We seek applications from, or recommendations of, emerging coastal science and policy leaders who are exceptional collaborators, young professionals, recent graduates, or grantees and who show leadership promise and passion to address opportunities and challenges from land to sea.
