Celebrating Excellence

Congratulations

The places we conduct our research and the tools we use to do so can attract a lot of attention. Using state-of-the-art robotics in awe-inspiring settings around the world is unquestionably exciting. But we know that the true strength of our institution is in our people, faculty, students and staff. The excellence that shines through the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment comes from them, and the Honors and Awards listed below are just an example of the quality of their work.
