About CSCs

CSCs are established at Minority-Serving Institutions through NOAA cooperative agreements. CSCs are designed to create collaborative partnerships with academic institutions.

Each CSC must conduct education and research that directly supports NOAA's mission. The centers recruit, train and graduate students, particularly from underrepresented communities, to create a pool of diverse candidates from which the agency and others may select its future workforce.

CSC scientific research supports and stimulates interest in STEM disciplines that are aligned with NOAA’s mission, strategic plans, objectives and outcomes.
