There is a need to bring science to more people as well as bringing more people (and diversity) to science. Our speakers will demonstrate how UMCES works to fill both needs. On one hand, they have two programs for training for students from underrepresented groups. On the other side, they package the state of the science and policy on coastal adaptation in a digestible way to help measure progress and increase accountability.

Join us on Wednesday, May 17th, from 12-1 pm for a member “take over” of the CRC Roundtable by UMCES to discuss the Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology (IMET) intern program, the Living Marine Resources Cooperative Science Center, and the coastal adaptation report card.



  • Peter Goodwin, CRC Board Member & President of UMCES


  • Eric Schott, Associate Research Professor at IMET, UMCES
  • Katie May Laumann, Science Integrator, UMCES

About CRC Roundtable

The Chesapeake Research Consortium (CRC) comprises seven research and education institutions around the Chesapeake Bay, convening with the goal of using science to inform management. We launched the CRC Roundtable, a monthly virtual seminar series, to host targeted, inclusive, and informed conversations matching scientific advances and management needs in a way that moves us collectively forward toward decision-making for effective and sustainable management of the Chesapeake Bay, its watershed, and its living resources. Learn more about what we accomplished in 2022 in our annual report and watch our 50th anniversary video.

The lunchtime seminars invite a diverse range of researchers, managers, and other professionals to have timely conversations around topics relevant to the Chesapeake partnership. The seminars also build connectivity across participating organizations and identify ways to increase our collective competency for decision making.
