Designed to convene and synthesize expertise, the Collaborative Institute has formed strategic partnerships with organizations and individuals that exhibit excellence in their respective fields of science, technology, marine research, and/or policy and governance. CIOCS Collaborators align with the Institute to share expertise on projects or programming as opportunities emerge, and representatives serve in various leadership capacities. CIOCS will measure its success by the ability to facilitate cross-cutting and transdisciplinary participation among diverse stakeholders.
To explore the synergistic benefits of becoming a CIOCS Collaborator, please contact Ira Jackson, dean of the John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies, and Robyn Hannigan, founding dean of the School for the Environment.
