Gulf Impact Project

The Gulf Impact Project will leverage existing university resources to facilitate research and community-based inquiry projects led by faculty and community partners. To realize this

mission, the Southern Miss GSP will inspire interest and engagement in the sustainability and resiliency of the Gulf Region through curriculum modifications and events, build the capacity of Gulf Scholars to address sustainability and resilience challenges within the region through mentoring and faculty development, and cultivate partnerships with community, industry, and government entities to create and promote student learning opportunities, concerning sustainability and resiliency of the Gulf region.

Aligned with the School of Coastal Resilience, the three pillars of the Southern Miss coastal operation sites, and the NASEM GRP Gulf Scholars Program, the Southern Miss GSP goals include the following:

1. Inspire interest and engagement in the sustainability and resiliency of the Gulf Region

2. Build the capacity of Gulf Scholars to address sustainability and resilience challenges within the region

3. Cultivate partnerships with community, industry, and government entities to create and promote student learning opportunities, concerning sustainability and resiliency of the Gulf region.

We will achieve these goals by creating curricular, co-curricular, and extracurricular pathways to the cumulative Gulf Impact Project and building knowledge about systems-thinking, equity, sustainability, and the Gulf Region en route. The administration and faculty of the Southern Miss coastal operations support the mission and goals of the Southern Miss GSP and look forward to building the relationships and capacity needed to bring these goals to fruition.
