10th Biennial ForumThe Biennial Education and Science Forum focuses on the important role educational partners such as the four EPP/MSI Cooperative Science Centers (CSCs) and Undergraduate Scholarship Program contribute to the NOAA community. The EPP Forum supports NOAA's objective to develop a diverse and capable workforce. Since 2001, EPP/MSI institutions have graduated over 2,000 students in NOAA mission fields. Over seventy percent of graduates are from communities traditionally underrepresented in NOAA mission fields.
The Tenth Biennial NOAA EPP/MSI Education and Science Forum will be hosted by the NOAA Center for Coastal and Marine Ecosystems at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University from March 29 - April 1, 2020.
