Gulf Impact Project

Gulf Impact Projects are research projects where Gulf Scholars will address the broad categories of livable coasts; equity; risk, disaster, and security; and defining the good life. Each Gulf Impact Project will include a proposal, project, reflection, and dissemination, including peer and community partner review, at the Gulf Symposium hosted by the GSP. Scholars will complete the Gulf Impact Project in their senior year.
