- Increase scientific literacy in microbial oceanography.
- Produce leaders in the next generation of microbial oceanographers (undergrads through post-docs) by providing state-of-the-art training.
- Increase the number of underrepresented minorities, including Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, pursuing careers in the ocean and earth sciences, and related disciplines.
