Primary tabs

The Policy Advisory Committee (PAC) provides advice and oversight for all aspects of the management and operation of the N.H. Sea Grant College Program. Its members play a critical role in strategic planning, including determining program priorities in research, extension, education and communications. The PAC also guides the implementation of these priorities through its role in reviewing and advising the program on operational policies and practices.
