Office of Marine Programs

For more than twenty years, the Office of Marine Programs (OMP) has served as the primary public education and outreach arm of the Graduate School of Oceanography. OMP efforts reach multiple audiences in Rhode Island, around the country, and throughout the world, including the scientific community and decision makers, teachers and students, journalists and media representatives, and the general public.  OMP’s Narragansett Bay Classroom offers a variety of marine and environmental professional development opportunities, field trips, interpretive programs, special events, lectures, and tours for people of all ages.
