SOURCESOURCE is an annual campus-wide forum in which students from all disciplines can present their faculty-mentored research, scholarship, and creative activities. While this initial program to highlight student and faculty research and creative expression is important, it is also symbolic in showcasing the best of what it means to be a Mariner.
The Georgia coast supports diverse and productive ecosystems and provides natural resources of immense economic and cultural value. As the human population and our ecological footprint grow, it is important to understand and appreciate the connectedness of our coastal environment and communities, as well as to employ science-based management strategies to protect and sustain them.
The purpose of the annual Ecological-Theme Symposium is to explore recent advances and outstanding challenges in ecological research and resource management along the Georgia coast. Invited speakers represent public and private agencies and academic institutions that are active in those areas. A poster session showcases research and service-learning by College of Coastal Georgia (CCGA) students and community partners. A concurrent information fair features local organizations and opportunities for engagement in coastal conservation.
