USCG Opens Center for Arctic Study and Policy

Officials at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy established the Center for Arctic Study and Policy (CASP) in a ceremony held on September 19, 2014.

The establishment of the Center is part of the Coast Guard’s strategic objectives for the Arctic which include improving awareness, modernizing governance, and broadening partnerships in the region.

The Center will serve as an operational think tank to focus on emerging Arctic issues and collaborate with the DHS Science and Technology Directorate’s network of Centers of Expertise and others for the advancement of safe, secure, and environmentally responsible maritime activity in the Arctic.

Dr. Kurt Colella, Dean of Academics at U.S. Coast Guard Academy said: “The CASP is a natural extension of USCGA’s Mission as an intellectual resource for our Coast Guard and beyond. The faculty and cadets are a huge force multiplier in advancing organizational strategy, inspiring critical thought, and addressing the challenges that face the future leaders of our great Service.”

The Center is housed within the existing Center for Maritime Policy and Strategy in the Humanities Department at the Coast Guard Academy.
