Welcome to the Mangone Center

The Gerard J. Mangone Center for Marine Policy was established in 1973-74 as the Center for the Study of Marine Policy, renamed in 2003 in honor of its founder. Dr. Mangone served as the director of the center for 15 years. It was the first research center at an American university dedicated to studying the legal, political and economic issues involving the ocean, seabed and coastal zone, topics its faculty and students continue to address.
