This is New York Sea Grant's (NYSG) Strategic Plan for 2010-2013, as requested by the National Sea Grant Office.
This plan has been developed during 2009 with input from the Board of Governors, Program Advisory Council, academic researchers in New York, and NYSG staff and stakeholder groups.
This plan draws upon the Strategic Plan of the National Sea Grant College Program (2009-2013) and other documents, but is focused on the needs of New York and its citizens.
The plan is structured around three Program Goals and four Subject Areas. The Program Goals are unique to NYSG and provide a clear focus and ready shorthand (economics, environment, and education) for discussing the program and its goals with policy makers and stakeholders, particularly when conducting our work and seeking funding.
The Subject Areas conform to the Focus Areas of the Strategic Plan of the National Sea Grant College Program (2009-2013), which simplifies interactions with the National Sea Grant College Program and other state Sea Grant programs as well as reporting to the National Sea Grant Office. This is also important in helping the National Sea Grant College Program to become more of a focused national program which addresses the needs of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Nation (Report of the National Sea Grant Advisory Board on Sea Grant Research, August 2009).
