Operational Memorandum of Understanding

The Lake Champlain Sea Grant (LCSG) program was established in 1999 to “improve the understanding and management of Lake Champlain, Lake George and their watersheds for long-term environmental health and sustainable economic development.” Federal funding for the LCSG comes from NOAA (Department of Commerce) in the form of a Cooperative Agreement to the University of Vermont. The core program is a partnership among the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources (RSENR) at the University of Vermont (UVM), the College of Arts and Life Sciences (CAS) at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh (SUNY-P), and UVM Extension, which operates within the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS).

The purpose of the Operational Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is to describe the overall framework and core functions of the LCSG and the strategic partnerships that are essential to its success. This MOU is intended to formalize the structure and operation of the LCSG.
