College of the Coast & Environment
Your Future Awaits
From our location near the mouth of the Mississippi River, the College of the Coast & Environment has a front-row seat to coastal and environmental changes impacting our state, nation, and the world. We see firsthand the effects of stressors such as coastal land loss, pollution, and severe weather. CC&E’s coastal and environmental research advances knowledge about these stressors--and much more--helping to deepen understanding of the ever-changing natural world and its relationship with our lives, livelihoods, and recreation. This research provides sound science so that stakeholders can make informed decisions. Every day, our students work alongside world-renowned multidisciplinary experts, acquiring the skills and abilities necessary to tackle complex coastal environmental challenges.
