SENCER Center for Innovation
About SCI-Chesapeake Bay
The Chesapeake Bay SENCER Center for Innovation is a new collaboration of faculty from universities and colleges in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia focused on the complex issues associated with our most important regional natural resource, the Chesapeake Bay.
Combining expertise in undergraduate teaching, course design and research, faculty from the SCI-Chesapeake Bay institutions bring interdisciplinary expertise to a variety of long-standing problems associated with alterations of the natural ecosystems that once sustained the Bay. Collaborations will improve faculty development, increased opportunities for undergraduate student learning and research, and stimulate improved public awareness of complex issues associated with the Bay.
