  • Description:
    Traditionally, the University of Wisconsin (UW) Sea Grant program has been organized around the concept of focused research areas— subprograms—and​ the goals and priorities of these subprograms combined served as the strategic plan for the program. This subprogram approach continues to provide a stable, long-term framework for managing the Wisconsin program today. Recently, however, the national Sea Grant Association and NOAA Sea Grant adopted an issue-oriented thematic approach to enhance the program's effectiveness in addressing the nation's most important ocean, coastal and Great Lakes issues. Three purposes of this approach, among others, were to help organize Sea Grant activities under areas of common interest, facilitate the synthesis of thematic efforts on a national scale, and provide a common basis for strategic planning at the state, regional and national levels. Accordingly, the UW Sea Grant program also adopted the theme-area approach, using the same themes as the national Sea Grant program, plus a theme for innovative projects, to strategically organize our 2004-​06 program, with the national goal(s) in each theme serving as the starting point for identifying Wisconsin's priorities within that theme. Besides encouraging multidisciplina​ry research, the thematic approach fosters greater integration of that research with our outreach and education subprograms as well as facilitating the synthesis of our program's efforts at the regional and national levels.
