Where We Work
The SEAS Islands Alliance operates in Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands

Guam

The Guam hub has strengths in extension and outreach and near-peer, hierarchical mentoring. It works with middle school, high school, undergraduate, and graduate students. This hub includes Guam, the Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of Palau, Republic of the Marshall Islands, and Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

Puerto Rico

The Puerto Rico hub has demonstrated success in training early undergraduate students in the geosciences and the incorporation of nontraditional metrics for student success. It works with middle school, high school, undergraduate, and graduate students.

U.S. Virgin Islands

The U.S. Virgin Islands hub provides expertise in creating mutually-reinforcing relationships with community partners across elementary, middle, and high schools, as well as undergraduate, graduate, and workforce programs.

Student Quotes

“The best feeling is being supported during this journey of growth within the scientific community. That is why one of my main goals as a graduate fellow is to serve as a mentor and provide guidance for other students.”
